Sometimes life events can have an enormous effect on our lives. We can feel overwhelmed by situations or as though we are having to deal with difficult issues alone with seemingly no way out. From time to time we experience events that might keep us stuck in negative behaviour patterns and reduce our quality of life. Counselling can help us to get through those times. It is a unique process that helps you to develop self-awareness and supports you to discover and strengthen your inner resources, empowering you to make changes in life. You are offered to talk about issues that affect your quality of life at your own pace and in an entirely confidential and non-judgemental environment. You will be helped to uncover negative patterns and triggers that undermine your wellbeing and supported to develop new perspectives, strategies and ways to deal with and manage them, so you can live, feel and thrive.
I am fully qualified and professionally experienced to assist you in this process to explore your difficulties in a safe, understanding and confidential space. Whether you feel the need to deal with a particular crisis or trauma or want help with more general issues, I offer both short term focused sessions and on-going counselling. I help with relationship issues, feelings of depression, anxiety, panic, bereavement, work related stress, specific mental health or general loss of meaning. I believe in insight-oriented therapy which will integrate techniques that are tuned to your needs and pace.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and fully comply with its ethical standards and guidelines. My experience includes working for a major mental health facility in Northampton for six years as well as counselling in a North London counselling centre. Currently, I teach counselling skills on a BACP accredited post graduate diploma for Psychodynamic Counselling. I also work in private practice.
My private practice consulting rooms in North London, Enfield and Finchley Central are easily accessible by public transport and very close to free and easy car parking. I also provide counselling at London Therapy Rooms in Central London, 1 min from Liverpool Street Station.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
