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)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
