About me

Welcome.

I believe the key to successful therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. If it's trusting and non-judgemental, then you will feel safe enough to explore whatever it is that has brought you to me.

How can psychotherapy help?

Becoming conscious of old patterns of behaviour and how they may have prevented you from growing is the key to living a fuller and more authentic life. None of us can alter reality, but we can choose how we engage with it. The process of therapy is not a mystery, it is a straightforward witnessing, heart to heart, between therapist and client. The aim is for you to become your own therapist and to hold the widest possible perspective on your own life.

What is my role?

My role is to help you unpick what's led you to this point. You may be experiencing intense trauma or simply want to understand yourself better. I will meet you where you are and be present with you, with compassion, in whatever experience you bring to the session.

What sort of difficulties might you bring to me?

Often people come to therapy experiencing anxiety or low-grade depression. I work with a wide range of difficulties such as relationship issues, bereavement (recent and past), addictive behaviours, low self-esteem or feelings of emptiness and a search for meaning. Healing begins when we acknowledge that we need to truly give ourselves space to reflect on our life.

What happens next?

If what I've said resonates with you, email or call me and we can arrange a time to have an initial session. In our first session we will look at what's brought you to this point and I will explain how I work. Sessions are weekly and last for 50 minutes. I charge £80 an hour and am available during the day in Central Crouch End.


Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified integrative transpersonal psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have a diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy (2003) from C.C.P.E. (Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, Beauchamp Lodge, Warwick Crescent, London W26NE) and an M.A. in Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy (De Montfort university 2004)

Transpersonal psychotherapy is an integrative counselling and psychotherapy approach which includes behaviourism, psychodynamic and humanistic psychologies but also acknowledges the spiritual potential of human beings.  My training allows me to meet your individual needs drawing from a range of therapeutic perspectives: person-centred and humanistic therapy,  existential therapies, psychodynamic therapy, family and systemic therapy,  cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness and transpersonal psychotherapy. I also use creative imagination and dreamwork.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
