About me

It is easy to find a counsellor but perhaps more difficult to know if you have found the right one for you. Will I feel safe and comfortable?

I am an accredited, experienced psychodynamically trained psychotherapist/counsellor, with additional CBT training, currently working in private practice in the North London area. I also have several years experience working in the NHS and the charity sector.

Life events and experiences can be distressing, feel overwhelming and intolerable and sharing these problems can feel daunting and anxiety provoking. I can provide professional support in a confidential and non-judgemental setting where thoughts and feelings can be aired through short term focused counselling or longer term psychoanalytic therapy. I can help work through a variety of personal or relationship issues, am experienced at working with people from different cultures and backgrounds. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their Code of Ethics.

Please get in touch by email or leave me a voice mail and I will be happy to discuss your enquiry and answer any questions you might have.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
