About me

How can counselling help?

Are you feeling stuck? Overwhelmed at work or are you struggling in a relationship? Have you suffered the loss of a loved one, or someone close? Are you looking for a change but don’t know where to begin? Are the strategies you’ve relied on in the past no longer working for you?

We’re all faced with challenges that can leave us feeling lost and alone and unable to move forward. Every step in my journey is a commitment to fostering healing and resilience to help resolve your difficulties, to step into your shoes and walk with you as we work together through them.

While it may feel difficult to commit to therapy, taking that first step is essential to finding ways to examine and relate to the issues in your past that are stopping you from moving forward.

What problems can I help support you with?

With years of experience working privately, and with both Mind and Cruse Bereavement Care, my focus is on helping individuals struggling with difficulties such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, life pressures, work conflicts, relationship problems, life changing health crises and bereavement.

There are many ways our mental health can be affected and I offer a safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore your unique inner world, to process your feelings and for you to take the steps necessary to get to the root of what you have been struggling with.

I believe that therapy is essentially a transformative journey of discovery aimed at bringing about positive change and clarity into your life. It’s about exploring and understanding the complexities of your experiences.

My Approach

I understand that each person is unique and in our sessions I tailor my approach to suit your specific needs. I take an integrative approach combining different counselling methods including Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and Transactional Analysis.

Each session is a safe place for you to take the steps required on your journey in a calm and confidential environment. My goal is to support you and help you understand your difficulties with greater awareness and to support you from wherever you are to the place you want to be.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a fully qualified Integrative Therapist affiliated with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP - Registration number 395884).  I have an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and I am also qualified as a specialised Bereavement Support Counsellor.

Along with my private practice, I am actively empowering individuals at Mind in Barnet, providing robust support and strategies to those experiencing depression and anxiety.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).
