A Psychosynthesis Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I have an established practice in both Highgate (N6) and Whetstone&Totteridge in Barnet (EN5) where I offer affordable and confidential counselling for both individuals and couples in a comfortable and professional environment. Meeting once or twice weekly for open-ended, or time-limited therapy. I offer in-person and online meetings.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Within a confidential and peaceful therapeutic environment you are encouraged to talk openly and honestly. Through our ongoing and regular meetings we will together work towards resolution and healing, helping you to gain a deeper understanding and kindness to the self that will help you to discover the potential to bring about much desired change and direction.
Some of the issues I work with include anxiety, depression, relationship and family issues, trauma & PTSD.
My initial psychotherapy training has been with The Institute of Psychosynthesis London. I have also subsequently studied with The Society of Analytical Psychology (SAP) London.
MEMBER of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP).
Psychosynthesis is a psychology of hope, with its eye not only on history, but also on a purposeful future giving individuals the capacity to reorient their lives in the direction of meaning and values. Psychosynthesis therapy helps you to gain a deeper understanding of your past and present, and helps you to know yourself more as you learn to trust your own feelings and thoughts. The therapy works at the level of both the personality and the soul, enabling you to find ways to work creatively with wounds and dysfunctions that have arisen during your life.

About Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
This is the term that Jung gave to his particular form of psychotherapy. Fundamental to Jung’s view of the psyche was that the mind and the unconscious could largely be trusted, and that it was all the time attempting to assist the individual; in this way he saw the psyche as self-regulating. Jung thought that even problematic symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, could be potentially helpful in drawing the individual’s attention to an imbalance in the psyche, for eg. if someone becomes depressed perhaps the way they are living their life means that they are not following a path that is natural and true to their particular personality. He understood this as being due to the purposive nature of the psyche. Jung also thought that the way that we see ourselves (our ego) is limited and that modern man has become cut off from his true, instinctual nature. He thought that we need to listen to ourselves and to come to discover who we really are and what we really feel. He came to believe that we need to be guided by what he called the self, which is an unconscious sense of the personality as a whole.

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.
