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)
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
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.
