About me

I am a fully qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist  working with adults and young people. I currently work as lead counsellor at a secondary school seeing teachers, parents and students as well as running a private practice from consulting rooms in East Finchley, North London.

I offer a safe, caring and supportive environment where we can work together to look at past experiences, address behaviours and understand feelings. I believe that the most important factor in a successful counselling experience is the relationship between client and counsellor. I nurture a positive and supportive relationship through which we can repair damage that has occurred during childhood or later in life and together begin to look forward to how you want your future to be.

I am an integrative practitioner which means that I am trained in multiple modalities. The model that I practice encompasses attachment informed, art based therapy and humanistic integrative models. At times I also use CBT, solution focused therapy and mindfulness tools to support symptom reduction.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been supporting vulnerable adults and families since 2005; first as a support worker in mental health and domestic violence and as a volunteer for Rape Crisis, before training as a counsellor in 2012 and later a psychotherapist. For 6 years I worked as a coach for Young Womens Trust supporting women age 16-25 with issues of confidence and life goals particularly around work. I am currently lead counsellor at a busy secondary school, supporting students age 11-18 as well as parents and teachers alongside my private work.

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.
