I am a fully qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist working with adults and young people. I 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 able to vary my way of working depending on the individual need. The model that I practice includes attachment informed, art based therapy, humanistic integrative models and mindfulness.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been supporting vulnerable adults, young people and families for over 10 years. I have previously worked for a forensic mental health service and Women's Aid. For 6 years I also worked as a coach for a charity supporting young women with confidence and a sense of direction. I have also worked at a carers centre and volunteered with Woman's Trust and Rape Crisis. As well as working in private practice I currently work as lead counsellor at a secondary school supporting students, teachers and parents therapeutically and supervising pastoral staff.

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.
