I am an experienced Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor with over ten years therapeutic experience. My work is accredited by UKCP and I am a registered member of BACP.
I have private practices in High Barnet and Crouch End where I provide a warm and caring environment that allows individuals the necessary time and space to work through difficult and distressing issues. I offer both short-term, solution-focused therapy and longer-term exploratory therapy and have weekday and evening appointments available.
My approach is Integrative which means I am qualified to practice a range of therapeutic techniques and approaches (including person-centred, psychodynamic, CBT and Relational). This enables me to work flexibly and to adapt the way I work to meet each individual's needs.
I work with young people and adults across a wide range of presenting issues including:
- Relationship difficulties and breakdown
- Stress and anxiety
- Bereavement, loss and separation
- Traumatic experiences from the past or present
- Emotional, Physical and Sexual abuse
- Low confidence and Self-esteem
- Substance misuse
Alongside my private practice I offer Clinical Supervision to other therapists; undertake research within the Counselling and Psychotherapy fields; and facilitate trainings.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold the following qualifications:
- Masters and Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling (UKCP and BACP accredited)
- Advanced Diploma, Diploma and Certificate in Humanistic Integrative Counselling (BACP accredited)
- Diploma in Clinical Supervision (BACP accredited)
I am a UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist and a BACP registered Pscyhotherapist and Counsellor.
I am committed to my continuing professional development as a therapist and regularly attend counselling and psychotherapy workshops, conferences and short courses. I have also undertaken research within the field of psychotherapy.
My work is fully insured and professionally supervised in accordance with BACP and UKCP guidelines and I adhere to both BACP and UKCP codes of ethics.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
Accredited register membership

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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
In addition to my client work I also offer Clinical Supervision to other Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
The first time we meet
Our initial session will be an opportunity for us to meet one another and to discuss what it is that brings you to therapy at this time. We can then decide how we will best work together and whether a full or reduced rate fee is most appropriate for you. There is no obligation for you to begin therapy after this session if, for example, you change your mind or we decide an alternative approach might suit you better.
If you decide you would like to take counselling forward with me, we will work out a regular day and time for you to come each week. It is important that you can come regularly each week to our planned sessions so we have the best chance possible of bringing about the changes you seek. These sessions will be a time for you to focus on what feels most important – whether that changes from week to week or becomes different explorations of the same issue. Whatever you bring will be treated respectfully and in confidence.
