Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious or depressed? Sometimes, life's challenges can start to feel like more than you can manage. You don't need to suffer in silence. A listening ear, warmth and empathy, together with someone who can guide you to unlock your inner strength is what you will find in your therapy. I have several years of experience working with anxiety, depression, addictions, bereavement, abuse and trauma. I am based in Hendon, North London close to bus stops and there is ample parking. Please do not hesitate to contact me to find out more.
What to expect from a fist session
This will be an opportunity to get to know each other and discuss what brings you to counselling. You can get an idea of how I work and see if you feel comfortable to work with me. I will do a brief assessment to get an idea of what we will work on. You may feel anxious to start counselling. It’s a big step and you may feel quite vulnerable, but the alternative is to feel stuck with no place to express yourself. It takes courage to open up about your feelings, but it will hopefully allow you to move forward, heal and live a happier and more fulfilling life.
How many sessions?
The number of sessions you would like to have depends on you. We normally review the work together in 6-week blocks. Some clients may feel ready to stop after only a few sessions, others may want to carry on for more long term therapy

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.
