About me

I am a humanistic psychotherapist and offer counselling and psychotherapy on a short term or long term basis in Finsbury Park N4.

Most people come into therapy with a specific issue they want to address. I will support you to explore what is not working in your life and help you to find your own solutions. I will get to know you and work with you in a way that best supports you. I am empathic and I will challenge you when needed.

You may be seeking therapy because you are experiencing difficult emotions such as stress, anxiety, anger, or low self esteem. You may have relationship difficulties, work related problems (including bullying), or parenting issues. You may have been through a bereavement or are experiencing the impact of sexual or physical abuse, either as a child or as an adult.

You don’t have to be in crisis to do therapy. Therapy is a way of giving yourself time to reflect and make changes so you live your life the best way you can. Therapy can help you to reflect on where you currently are and what you would like to achieve in the future. I can help you on that journey.

All of our work is confidential. I encourage you to be open and honest and will not judge you. What you want from therapy may suit brief therapy or longer-term work. We may meet for a specific length of time or your work may be open-ended. We will discuss this at the beginning and review from time to time during our work together.

Currently running a workshop to help those living with bereavement:

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed 6 years training at Spectrum, a centre for humanistic and integrative psychotherapy. I am a  BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Accredited counsellor and humanistic psychotherapist and work in accordance with their ethical framework.

I am interested in people, our uniqueness and differences. I have worked in IT for 25 years and have brought up a family. I understand the challenges of balancing work with the demanding commitments of life and family. I am passionate about therapy which has been of immeasurable value in my life.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
