About me

Hello and welcome to my page.

Research shows that "the relationship" is the therapy, in which we and our clients live, breathe and find meaning.

Have you experienced domestic violence, suffer from depression, wants to know how to repair your relationship and live a fulfilling life, going through some work-related stress, experienced and dabbled with drug & alcohol addictions, suffer from anxiety, had a bereavement or loss, suffering in silence about self-harming or at a crossroad and don't know which way to turn, do you need a safe environment to explore all these overwhelming issues, please feel free to contact Capes Haven Ltd Counselling Services.
My services include:  One to One counselling and Supervision

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Practitioner, trauma informed, Brainspotting practitioner and Supervisor based in North London. My work also involves being a counselling lecturer and mentoring freelance trainer.

I hold a BSc (Honours) Degree in Integrative Counselling awarded by Roehampton University and approved by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I am also a fully registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy  (MBACP). This is very important to you, as it means that I am bound and adhere to their ethical framework and code of conduct.

Being an integrative therapist means that I work using integration of the following modalities: Psychoanalysis, Humanistic ( person-centred and personal growth), Psychodynamic (predominantly early life development and experiences), Existentialism and Phenomenology (the what if? and why? questions we ask ourselves).

Member organisations


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.
