I see individuals who feel stuck for a whole variety of reasons. Maybe you are stuck in a particular time, place or experience from a past trauma; maybe you are struggling to move forward in your life; or maybe you are stuck in unhealthy behavioural patterns. Whatever brings you to therapy, my specialty is a deep exploration of all the factors that are holding you back.
To do this, I develop long-term supportive relationships with my clients and work in an open-ended way, rather than exclusively trying to “fix” the immediate problem. I use my strong expertise in psychotherapeutic theory, alongside a caring and patient approach, to help people address their challenges at a level they can’t reach on their own.
I pride myself on my ability to help people feel at ease, even when discussing distressing feelings or experiences. I am skilled in creating a safe and nurturing environment for those who are unsure or nervous about therapy. My work is always led by the client’s needs, and my “integrative” style of psychotherapy means that I get a full understanding of the person, and adapt my methods to suit the individual.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have years of experience (including in NHS funded services, open-ended psychotherapy services and private practices) working with clients on personal struggles, anxiety, depression, mental health challenges, grief, social pressures, sexuality and intimacy and other issues. Together we will tackle whatever you bring to a session, and I offer the fundamental support you need to live a balanced and fulfilling life.
I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the Minster Centre, and I am completing a further Advanced Diploma/MA in Integrative Psychotherapy for 2020 completion. I am a registered member of the BACP, adhere to their codes of ethical practice.
Give me a call or send me an email to arrange a consultation. Our first session will explore what has brought you to therapy and how we might work together. All sessions take place in comfortable, confidential and safe setting. I currently have availability in both Finsbury Park as well as in Haggerston/Dalston.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
