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.

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.

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).
