About me

(Due to the current situation with COVID-19 I am offering Online Therapy.) I have an OCST Online Therapy Diploma, which enables me to work confidentially online with my clients. I offer online therapy using Zoom for Video sessions, VSEE for IM (instant messenger) sessions, Email using Protonmail and telephone sessions.

I am a HCPC registered Art Psychotherapist/Counsellor. I work from home at my private practice in North London, I provide a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for my clients to express and explore themselves . I work with children, adolescents, adults and elderly people from different cultural backgrounds, religions and gender.

Art Psychotherapy/Counselling is helpful for psychological, emotional difficulties, personal growth and self-esteem. Art Psychotherapy differs from many other psychological therapies, as it works as a three way relationship between the client, the therapist and the art itself. It provides opportunity for creative exploration, this exploration helps and provides emotional communication that may have otherwise been difficult to verbally articulate. Being such a versatile profession it meets the needs of most people and looks at issues in different ways which can help tap in to emotions that may have been suppressed, buried or ignored.

The therapy provides weekly, private and confidential sessions where we can both verbally and creatively explore past and present situations which may influence the way we behave and our thought processes. Participants do not need to have had any art experience.

I also work as an Art Psychotherapist at the Grief Encounter Organisation. Where my work focuses on bereavement with children and their families.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
