About me

Due to COVID -19, I am now working primarily online via Zoom or Cisco WebEx until further notice. I am an experienced and qualified BACP Accredited Person-Centered Counsellor since 2016, working privately in North London and with organisations.

My approached is Person-Centred Therapy and I offer online sessions. I have worked with individuals presenting with issues such as depression, isolation, stress, anxiety, bereavement, divorce, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, sexuality, drug and alcohol. Post-traumatic stress disorder and childhood trauma, etc. I provide a safe, non-judgement, unconditional space for my client to explore their thoughts and feelings.

I am passionate about supporting people through trying and difficult times or those who simply want a better understanding of themselves. My sessions are client driven and we discuss issues in an accepting and conducive space.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

In my first session, I offer an initial, 30-minute online session free of charge at your convenience. This will establish a relationship to see if we can work effectively together. In this session, we will agree on what time would be suitable for our weekly sessions online.

In our first session, we will discuss what brings you to therapy and what you would like to focus on. We will discuss your expectations, length of treatment and time. I request your next of kin and GP information.
