About me

I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, which means that I was trained to work across a wide range of different therapeutic approaches. The Integrative Approach allows me to adopt the most appropriate counselling approach for each individual client, depending on the client and depending on the issues presented.

I started my private practice in the City of London, (2005 - 2011) and I have been working in North London since 2012. I have over 7 years' experience of working as a Counsellor in a Mental Health Resource Centre (NHS). My specialist areas are working with mental health issues - including generalised anxiety, panic attacks, depression, low self-esteem and low-confidence. I also have a special interest in working with abuse (physical & Emotional), addiction, relationship issues and bereavement and loss

With a lengthy background of working in Human Resources in large professional organisations, I also work as an executive coach and mentor on work related issues, including maximising performance, stress management, bullying, redundancy and conflict resolution.

My consulting room is in Islington (N1) North London.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

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.
