About me

You may be seeking support because of a sudden personal crisis such as a bereavement or work or relationship problems or you may have realised over a period of time that something is not working for you. Perhaps you are feeling stuck and unfulfilled in your present situation and unsure where to go from here. You may sometimes feel low and down or angry and frustrated and you are not sure why. Counselling and psychotherapy can offer a safe, confidential and supportive place to explore where you are, where you have been and where you would like to be in the future, helping you to develop your resources and move forward.

I am an experienced UKCP-Registered Psychotherapist offering both short-term and long-term psychotherapy. I use an integrative approach, drawing on a variety of therapeutic ideas and techniques to fit the therapy to your needs.

I offer couple counselling in north London, N4, and West London, W2 - low cost fees are available.


Please feel free to call me for a confidential chat, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Accessibility

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.
