How counselling can help
I understand that issues emerge in our lives that can sometimes feel confusing, difficult and even painful, with this in mind my focus will be to encourage a feeling of comfort so that we can talk about and work together with what has led you to seek counselling. It may be that in a few sessions a satisfactory position is achieved; sometimes, even though the initial issue has been dealt with, other aspects of life come to the surface that deserve further attention. Together we can decide and discuss what feels important at a pace that works for you.
My approach to counselling is psychodynamic and within that I aim to provide a collaborative and respectful style of working to promote honest communication with kindness and curiosity. It could be that you want to find a quick solution to a symptom, or you find yourself in a crisis, or that something in your history is impacting your present. Perhaps you feel you have lost direction or that you find yourself repeating unwanted patterns or behaviours. It could be you need clarity about what is happening in your life at this moment or maybe not knowing exactly what it is that you are looking for. However typical or distinct you may believe your issues to be, your journey to understanding and dealing with them is unique to you, and it is this which will form the basis of our sessions.
An initial appointment is offered as soon as possible after our first contact during which we can assess how we might work together. Our sessions will be for 50 minutes, and usually we will meet once a week.
My practice is situated in a quiet location in northwest London, car parking is readily available and also in central London within easy reach of public transport.

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.
