As an experienced and qualified psychodynamic counsellor with a private practice in my home, I am often able to offer appointments at short notice.
Most people experience difficult times at some point in their lives; you may be struggling to cope at work, have issues within your relationships, or have lost someone close to you. You may find yourself feeling anxious or depressed, or have an ongoing sadness without really understanding why. You may notice yourself repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour and really want to make a change.
Even if you have close family and friends, you may still feel like you are alone with your fear and pain and feel a sense of isolation. Talking things through with a trained and experienced counsellor can enable you to share and explore your feelings and concerns in a safe, supportive and confidential space.
What I offer....
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor with a private practice in Whetstone.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their code of ethics
My approach is broadly psychodynamic offering face to face counselling once a week to adults and young people
I believe that past and present are linked. Together we can reflect on these connections and begin to find new and healthier emotional responses.

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.

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).
