About me and my therapy practice

People come and see me for many reasons. Sometimes it’s general, you just feel like life is kicking you in the teeth and it’s all too much or it lacks focus. Perhaps you have no one who ‘gets you’ or who will really listen to you.

Alternatively, there may be a specific reason; a death, the breakdown of a relationship or issues arising out of Coronavirus. It could be a work, school or friendship related issue; such as being bullied or unfairly treated. Perhaps you may suffer from anxiety or depression or a lack confidence in yourself or your body. Or maybe you are experiencing feelings of anger, frustration, guilt or shame.

Whatever the reason, don't struggle alone. If you feel you can't share with friends or family, talk to me and together we can work it out. I am here to listen and help you explore and make sense of things in a private, supportive and non-judgemental environment. My aim is then to help you move forward in a way that is right for you.

My Background

After spending over 20 years in the corporate world, I decided to get off the hamster wheel, re-train and began mentoring young people and providing help to families in crisis. Subsequently I qualified as a counsellor, and my experience now includes working with adults and young people in both private practice and within a counselling organisation.

I hold a Foundation Degree and BACP accredited Diploma in Counselling and am a fully registered member of the BACP. I am also DBS-checked (Disclosure and Barring Service) and fully insured.

Practice description

My practice is in a quiet, private and comfortable room. It is near Barnet town centre and parking is available.

My first session

In our first meeting we can talk about what has brought you to counselling and what you wish to get from our work together. It’s also an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have. I will also ask you some questions about your personal history and current situation.
