I work with individuals and couples. Helping people feel empowered to transform their life.
I support clients with a variety of issues including: relationship problems; trauma; bereavement; anxiety; depression; work stress; personal and family stress; ill health; survivors of serious crime (domestic violence; rape; assault; harassment; adult survivors of childhood abuse).
I offer day and evening appointments in Finchley N12. I also provide home visits (for clients with ill health or physical disabilities) within a 30 minute drive from Finchley.
During lockdown I am providing all sessions via Video Link and free sessions for key front line NHS workers.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working as a counsellor since 2000. I have a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling (with CSCT, The Central School of Counselling Training) and Couple Relationship Counselling (with the Relate Institute).
I have worked in a variety of settings, including:
- Charity: Victim Support; Relate; Raphael (general counselling) & JBCS (bereavement counselling).
- Private Practice: Finchley; Video Link; Home Visits.
- Organisational Counselling: Staff counsellor; onsite critical incident responder.
Although my core for working with clients is from a Humanistic Person Centred perspective, I also use a variety of theories depending on the needs to my clients. These include: Psychodynamic; Systemic; Existential; Solution Focused Therapy and Psychological First Aid.
I believe everyone is unique, I have experience in adapting my style to suit the needs of my clients.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
