About me

Worried about anxiety or depression? Relationship issues? Self-confidence? Your health? Not feeling close to other people? Or another concern?

Looking for affordable counselling?

I am a qualified counsellor in Enfield Town. I offer help to individual adults, or couples, with a variety of difficulties. I offer the chance to talk together. When people come to see me, understandably the first thing they want to know is if I am someone they can talk to and relate to easily. They tell me that this is a yes. After the first session they sometimes tell me that they feel relieved, got it off their chest. Coming to talk with me is giving yourself an extra opportunity to sort out what is bothering you. I understand that it can be a big step to go and see a counsellor and start the process of beginning to heal.

My training and practice is in Person Centred Counselling. Person Centred Counselling is about developing a fuller understanding of yourself. It is about you coming to understand better how your attitudes, feelings and behaviour are sometimes affected negatively.  Gaining this understanding enables you to feel better in due course. Making the effort to make changes - to change yourself - helps you to understand yourself better, in my view.

I believe that people are essentially good, although some people do bad or self-destructive things sometimes. I work at being warm, genuine and understanding. I don't expect change to come easily or magically but working on it together with commitment can make a difference.

I closely observe the Code of Ethics for good practice of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Counselling from Middlesex University 1999

I worked as a local authority Social Worker and as Independent Social Worker for over 40 years mainly in children and families work (fostering particularly) and in mental health work. Over these years I have used counselling skills in a great many circumstances. I have seen that people may suffer considerable emotional pain through a variety of circumstances. I have learned that people can find strength through their struggles, can find greater inner peace and can move on with their lives, sometimes on their own or with the support of family members or friends or helping organisations or counsellors.
