About me and my therapy practice
I am an Integrative Counsellor in private practice based in North London. I work face to face and over the telephone.
I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling (2015) from the Minster Centre, a leading counselling and psychotherapy training institute (validated by Middlesex University). My training includes psychodynamic, humanistic, relational and person-centred therapeutic approaches. My way of being with clients is person-centred, whilst I keep psychodynamic ideas and attachment theory in mind to inform our work together.
Before starting private practice in 2019, I worked for two branches of Mind, a London hospital bereavement service, a low-cost therapy service and a women’s healthcare charity. I am passionate about making mental health stigma a thing of the past and was once a befriender for Samaritans.
I offer both short and long-term counselling. My usual availability for weekly sessions is during the day, Monday-Thursday.
I have supported clients with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and through times of loss and major life changes, including navigating the impact of parenthood. I listen with warmth and care and without judgement. I offer a welcoming space to talk in confidence about what is troubling you. It's not always easy to process what's going on inside, and feelings such as anger, loneliness, sadness, anxiety or shame are challenging to be with. Because of this, I aim to build a trusting therapeutic relationship with clients, so that you feel safe and supported as we explore what it is that's bought you to therapy. Our work together can help you manage your feelings better as you find a way forward that feels meaningful, with greater self-understanding.
My first session
After speaking briefly on the phone, we can schedule a first session either over the phone or in person face to face. The aim of this first session is for us to get a sense of each other and for you to see whether you'd like to work with me as your counsellor. I'll have the chance to understand more about what's going on for you, to consider how I can help and you'll have the opportunity to ask any questions. If we agree to continue together, counselling sessions are at the same time, same telephone number/place, each week for 50 minutes.
