Are you feeling down or lost? Do you find relationships hard? Are you keen to understand yourself better? Or perhaps work through a difficult decision?
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, providing a confidential place to talk. My approach is non-judgemental and client focused, giving you the time and space to explore the things you are finding difficult in life.
Sometimes we experience things that are overwhelming or difficult to discuss with the people around us. This can make us feel vulnerable and lonely. It can help to talk to someone who is trained to listen and can focus solely on you. When you feel properly understood you can gain insight and clarity, making it easier to deal with choices and change.
Counselling with me can either be short-term, focused work, or longer term - where issues can be explored in more depth. We will work together to examine the experiences that have led you to this point in your life, aiming for an enhanced sense of wellbeing in the future.
Sessions are 50 mins and usually take place weekly. They can be paid for at the end of each month. How many sessions you have is something we can discuss together. My therapy room is private, comfortable and conveniently located.

Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BACP accredited diploma in Counselling. In addition I did the Counselling Skills course at Birkbeck, University of London and completed a course on Adolescence at the Tavistock Centre. I continue to develop my skills, knowledge and experience through regular CPD workshops, peer discussion and reading.
I am registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). The BACP require evidence of qualifications and good professional standards and I am bound by their ethical framework. I am in regular supervision in accordance with BACP guidelines.
I have worked in London for several years. I am experienced in working with a diverse range of clients and a broad spectrum of issues. Alongside my private practice I have worked as counsellor for two North London charities and as a School Counsellor, helping young people with emotional problems and challenging behaviour.
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.
