I am an experienced qualified & registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist that has worked both within the NHS and in a variety of mental health organisations across London. I have worked with adults as well as families using an Integrative Approach within my practice. I work in the areas of North London, and offer sessions during business hours, early evenings, and also weekends. I offer counselling in relation to a range of issues, including Depression, Stress and Anxiety related problems.
How I work
My work is focused on ensuring that each client is seen as a unique individual, with differing sets of life experiences. By using an Integrative approach, this allows me to adapt to the various needs that each client brings to therapy. I recognise that one approach can be very limited when working with an array of issues within therapy, and believe that it is valuable to be able to utilise where necessary different approaches.
How can I help?
Understanding changes in our emotions, and why at points we feel somewhat immobilised by life events in itself can be emotionally challenging. I offer a supportive space for individuals to talk about these feelings in a safe and non-judgemental environment; this has helped people feel listened to and better able to explore these emotions in depth and begin to gain some understanding of their feelings.
I offer individual therapy, couples therapy and also work with families for short or longer term interventions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered Member of the BACP, and have obtained my BA Honours degree in Psychology, and Post Graduate qualifications in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked for a number of years with local Government providing Counselling support to staff referred as part of tailored Occupational Health Intervention & Support service.
I also work directly with a National Wellbeing and Psychological Support Service as a therapist offering Counselling and CBT interventions to clients.
Prior to becoming a qualified counsellor, I have worked in both the statutory and non-statutory sector, with adults and families with complex needs, including dual diagnosis.
I have extensive experience of working with families, in the field of Early Intervention Services and adult mental health.

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.
