About me

Hello, I am an experienced and established therapist working with clients in Whetstone, N20 on a wide range of issues including feelings of sadness and depression, anxiety, anger, conflict at home and a whole range of family and parenting worries.

You may be experiencing difficulties in your close relationships from the change of seasons, adjusting after lockdown and the pandemic, or it might be that everyday life has become overwhelming. Many people find the way they have dealt with things in the past - their recurring patterns of behaviour - simply don't help, and come looking for ways to unravel problems in different ways.

So, I offer a safe space where thoughts and feelings can be explored and trust built - from being listened to in a deep and skillful way. Some of my clients come on a short term basis and others for longer, and in that time find ways to untangle some of their painful emotions and gain the insight and knowledge to lead a more fulfilling life.

What I offer....

I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and registered member of the BACP and adhere to their code of ethics

My approach is broadly psychodynamic but I tailor the sessions according to the needs of individuals.

I offer weekly sessions that are either face-to-face or online.

I see adults, older adults and young adults (17+)

Member organisations

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.
