I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor 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)
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).
