An Experienced, Accredited Counsellor with clinics in Crouch End and Muswell Hill

My Approach

For some people, it is important to understand the past, while others prefer to work in a solution-focused way focusing on the present. I take an integrative approach to therapy, which allows a flexible treatment based on your individual needs.

I have been counselling using a variety of approaches since 2005, working with individuals, groups and couples to help them gain insight and work towards real-world change.

My work is heavily influenced by the person-centred school of therapy, which focuses on the importance of building a non-judgmental, supportive counselling relationship.

When clients are looking for practical change, to move on from depression or crippling social anxiety, I use a more directive approach, such as cognitive and behavioural therapy (CBT). My main aim is to create a trusting empathetic relationship and find out what works well for you.

Experience and Training

I have a proven track record of working with issues like depression and anxiety, as well as low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, assertiveness, trauma, stress and life transitions. I work full-time as a therapist in both NHS-funded and private settings.

Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Practitioners

I'm a registered and accredited member of the BACP, which is the leading professional accrediting body for counselling and psychotherapy in the UK. I'm also a fully accredited member of FDAP, which is the leading accrediting body for addiction professionals in the UK.

My training is ongoing; I hold an MSc in Addiction Psychology and Counselling from London South Bank University and diplomas in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy. I did my counselling certificate training at the University of London (Goldsmiths College).

Each year I undertake continuous professional development to keep my practice up to date and to maintain my accreditation with the BACP and FDAP.
