Welcome to my profile.
You might have thought of coming to therapy for a while or it may be a recent idea. In either case, I am here to listen to whatever is burdening you and to explore how we can make life a little easier. No problem is too big or small.
Within our therapy sessions I will give you time just for you, offering a safe and calming space for your experiences to be shared, heard and respected. My aim is to work alongside you to gain new perspective, effective coping mechanisms and an inner sense of confidence and calm.
I believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to feel at ease and to live a fulfilling life, and I look forward to getting to know your unique life story and supporting you during what must be a very difficult time.
Training, qualifications & experience
MSc. Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (Person-centred/Attachment theory/CBT)
PgCert. Addiction Psychology and Counselling
I am an experienced and fully qualified BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist working from an integrative stance. This means that I draw on elements from different psychological approaches to create a personalised approach that suit your needs.
I am also a member of The British Infertility Counselling Association and hold a great interest in supporting those affected by infertility or difficulties around becoming parents.
The Covid-19 pandemic has affected people and families in profound ways and I am currently supporting individuals with the bereavement service for Mind in Barnet.
My previous roles have been within the public, private and charitable sector. Here I have supported children, adults and families faced with challenges, such as relationship breakdown, overwhelm, anger, feeling misunderstood, sleep-problems, bereavement, infertility and work-related stress.
All my work is in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework, placing you the client at the centre.
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

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).
