About me

I am a registered BACP member and abide by their code of ethics. I am also a Registered member of the European Association for Counselling. I am psychotherapeutic counsellor providing counselling in Kentish Town or by zoom.

I have worked in the voluntary sector for over 20 years, supporting people with their self esteem and mental health in a variety of settings. I qualified as a psychotherapeutic counsellor in 2016 and have over 700 hours working with my clients.


Is there an area of your like that you are not entirely happy about? Talking to someone who is independent, impartial and empathetic can help you make sense of what is going on for you.

Whatever you are going through, whether it is Self esteem and confidence, anxiety, depression, bereavement or relationship issues, talking with a counsellor can help you make the right decisions for you.

I have worked with bereavement, depression, abuse (sexual, physical, emotional and financial) anxiety, addiction and stress. My main interests and expertise are helping people through significant change, working to realise their potential and working towards self acceptance.

I am also a practitioner of mindfulness and meditation and always endeavour to work holistically. I very much enjoy relating with clients from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. I offer my clients strict confidentiality and a quiet and a comfortable place for self reflection.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

I aim to be a caring and empathetic witness to your life. I work holistically taking on board a number of different theoretical framework. The theories I use are:

Psychodynamic - reflects upon how you experienced your past and how it impacts your present.

Humanistic - allows you to focus on your feelings in the here and now.

At the centre of this is the therapeutic relationship we can build together, so you feel free to be open and find your own solutions

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
