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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
