I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor with experience working with adults and young people, with a broad range of issues. I provide short and longer-term counselling in a very private, calm and comfortable consulting room in Alexandra Park (N22), with easy access to public transport and free parking.
Most of us will experience difficulties at various points in our life. These might result from a change in life circumstances, relationship difficulties, or perhaps traumatic events from our past. You might feel stuck, unable to make an important decision, or you might feel that life just hasn't gone the way you hoped or expected it to. Whether your issues relate to your past, present or future, I can help support you through what might otherwise be a very difficult time.
I provide a safe and confidential space for you to talk openly and honestly. I passionately believe that each of us has a voice that deserves to be heard; I will listen to your story without judgment, with warmth and compassion, helping you to feel heard, seen and valued. Together, we will explore your thoughts and feelings at a pace that feels right for you. The aim is to help you take greater control of your life, so that you feel more content, resilient and able to choose how you wish to respond to life's challenges, rather than simply reacting in the ways you always have before.

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.
