About me

When life’s road feels bumpier and then bumpier again therapy can shine a light on the causes and the best way forward.

I will provide a safe, warm confidential environment, where we will identify, explore and work through what’s troubling you. Through our relationship and by working together we will discover and develop new ways of approaching life that will serve you better-ways which are less compromised by the past.

I work mainly with a psychodynamic approach, recognising that current distress and experiences may be influenced by early life experiences. This approach allows you to understand yourself at a deeper level rather than purely seeking symptom relief. In turn this can lead to a greater self awareness and new ways of thinking, behaving and relating.

It can feel difficult to make the first call. However, do not let this put you off taking the first step. Allowing yourself the freedom to speak to a Counsellor is the healthiest, most constructive thing you can do for yourself and the people who matter to you.

After an initial conversation on the telephone, I offer a consultation interview which lasts 50 minutes. The consultation will provide an opportunity, for us both, to explore your difficulties and decide what is the best way forward and to see if we can work together. Sometimes we may meet more than once before deciding whether to begin therapy or not. There is no commitment to engage in therapy at this stage whether you want to proceed is entirely your decision.

If we do agree to continue we would meet once a week for 50 minutes on an agreed day and time. It is difficult to predict how long therapy will last. Some focused difficulties are more suitable for short term therapy, which usually last 12 weeks, other difficulties are more suitable for long term therapy. We can discuss which option will suit you best at the initial consultation. I work from both Muswell Hill and East Finchley.

Training, qualifications & experience

As well as private practice, I work as a counsellor with Highgate Counselling Centre. I hold a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, a recognised British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited qualification.

I have also worked with No Panic a charity which focuses on helping people who suffer from panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorders and other related anxiety disorders.

Before training as a Counsellor I worked as a professional in the City for a number of years and I am familiar with the pressures of these environments.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
