About me and my therapy practice

I work with individual adults who are finding it difficult to cope with the challenges life presents. For some it is anxiety and stress, for some it's relationship issues, including loss and bereavement, for some it may be depression or sadness. I also work with people who are struggling in their work or career. Often it's a combination of things. Sometimes my clients feel overwhelmed and seek opportunity to offload, sometimes they want to dig deeper in order to gain some insight into their lives with a view to making changes. I'm an experienced counsellor and I also work as a supervisor to other counsellors.

I offer individual face to face and remote (telephone, Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom) counselling. 

Face to face counselling at my home in Finchley Central. There is local street parking and I'm a 5 - 7 minute walk from the tube station.

My first session

I offer an initial telephone conversation at no charge.  This is an opportunity for you to let me know what you would like from counselling, and to ask any questions you might have. It's also a chance for us to talk about how we would want to work together. This will hopefully enable us both to decide if we are right to work with each other, and I would then leave you to think about it and decide if you would like to work with me.

 This telephone conversation will typically last 20 - 30 minutes.

About me and my therapy practice

I see the relationship between supervisor and supervisee as that of colleagues. We travel along the road together, looking at the issues you bring with curiosity and creativity.

I believe there are three key components to good clinical supervision. I aim:

to help my supervisee develop their skills and capabilities as a therapist

to help my supervisee to work safely and within the ethical framework of their professional body

to encourage and support my supervisee so that they feel confident about themselves and their work.

I’ve had good and poor supervisors. The good ones allowed me to feel like a good counsellor, the poor ones left me feeling as if I was constantly getting it wrong. They also meant I had to stop taking cases to them, afraid to share difficult issues in case I was criticised.

Being a therapist is hard. I’ve never ended a session thinking I did it perfectly. That’s impossible. My job as a supervisor is to appreciate how hard it is, and allow you to feel safe to share your worries about the work.

That doesn’t mean I won’t challenge you. I will when I need to, but I’ll try to do it in a way that doesn’t damage your confidence. I’ll do it from the perspective of trust and belief in you as a therapist.

Practice description

I trained as a person centred counsellor (Metanoia) and as an integrative supervisor (CPPD). 

I work with therapists and counsellors at all levels of experience including students.

I offer a discounted rate of £40 per hour for students (I can still just about remember what it was like to be a student!)

My first session

I offer an initial telephone conversation to give us an opportunity to get to know each other and to assess whether I'm the right person to be your supervisor. 

There's no charge for this session.

Types of therapy

CBT, Gestalt, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Transactional analysis

Clients I work with

Adults, Groups, Older adults, Trainee
