I am an experienced therapist who works with both individuals and couples in Barnet, North London.
I have extensive experience working with people in emotional distress, and have supported clients with a wide range of issues including abuse and neglect, anxiety, bereavement, and depression. I also work with individuals seeking to develop their identity, confidence, assertiveness and self-esteem.
I specialise in relationship issues and am experienced in supporting individuals who are struggling with intimacy and relating, as well as couples who are having difficulties with communication, who are in conflict, or who wish to establish a greater physical or emotional connection, or who would like to deepen their commitment. I am trained and experienced in working with psychosexual issues where I use an integrative approach. I respect diversity in sexuality as well as in all other areas of my clinical practice.
I am BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists) accredited and I am a member of BPS (British Psychological Society).
I have also undertaken specific supervision training and offer clinical supervision to both trainees and qualified practitioners. I am able to offer some reduced cost spaces.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Supervision
Advanced Diploma in Couples Therapy,
London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy,
Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling,
BsC(Hons) in Psychology
Since 2009 I have been running a successful private practice working with many cultures and nationalities and a variety of issues ranging from identity to communication issues to sexuality and relationship issues.
For 7 years, in addition to my main private practice, I provided short term (6-8 sessions) solution focused counselling for clients referred by GPs for anxiety, relationship issues, depression, etc. in Stevenage and North Herts Counselling Centre, North Hertfordshire.
I worked as an honorary couples/psychosexual counsellor in Ealing Abbey Counselling Service helping couples who were in conflict or were struggling to communicate. I also worked with sexual dysfunctions and issues of jealousy and possessiveness.
I was a voluntary counsellor for 3+ year in Camden, City, Islington and Westminster Bereavement Service. Whilst the main issue bringing clients to this service is bereavement, often there are underlying issues, which are complicating the grief such as depression, low self-esteem, abuse, lack of identity etc.
I also worked as a Voluntary Counsellor for 3+ years in Enfield Women's Centre, where the issues I worked with included sexual abuse, self-esteem issues, depression, Bipolar disorder, anxiety, assertiveness, domestic violence, inertia, changing life situations and relationships.
I undertook Diploma in supervision in 2015 and supervise therapists for individuals, couples and for psychosexual issues. I believe supervision just as much as therapy requires a safe space to achieve the best result for everyone. While it is always relational, sometimes it needs to be supportive and educational, while at other times it needs to be challenging too.
