COVID-19 - In this uniquely challenging time, I am able to offer support via online or telephone sessions. I am not currently offering ‘in person’ appointments. If you are suffering anxiety related to the virus or any other topic, having some dedicated time to talk through your worries can be a great help. Please see below for my general approach.
Perhaps you have difficulties at work or in a relationship? Maybe you feel that life itself is becoming a struggle? I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor. I work in Islington, North London and can offer appointments in N19, less than 10 minutes walk from Archway Underground Station and close to HIghgate Village and Crouch End. I aim to provide a friendly, confidential, non-judgmental space in which you can speak freely about whatever is troubling you.
It can be unnerving, to approach a stranger to discuss personal matters. I believe that one of the most important elements in a successful therapy is a trusting relationship between therapist and client and so it is important to find someone with whom you feel comfortable. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
I can offer time-limited or open-ended appointments, whatever suits your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Counselling and an M.A in Integrative Psychotherapy from the Minster Centre, London. In addition to my private practice, I have worked for the NHS in a busy GP Practice and in the healthcare unit of a women’s prison. Previously, I worked as a television researcher and news desk editor.
I am a registered member of both BACP and UKCP and abide by these organisations codes of ethics and good practice.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
