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)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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.
