About me and my therapy practice

I am a Person - Centred counsellor/psychotherapist working in North London.  

As a Person - Centred therapist my aim is to provide a genuine relationship with empathy and acceptance at the core and a safe space where we untangle current, and past, experiences to make sense of your innermost sensations and feelings.

You might be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, stress and depression and seeking answers to why this may be so.  You may feel lost and are seeking meaning and purpose; a way forwards. 

I have personally felt the transforming power of being in a therapeutic relationship with a therapist who 'got me' by truly listening to my experiences.  When I felt safe enough to reveal my most painful, disorganised parts of my being she was able to communicate her understanding and I felt valued and cared for.  In time, I was able to offer this acceptance and valuing to myself which was incredibly healing and empowering.

Practice description

I believe you hold the ability to heal past, and present, emotional hurt within the safe boundaries of a therapeutic relationship that provides the right conditions for growth; empathy, acceptance and understanding. 

The very nature of therapy can mean at times it feels incredibly powerful when a meaningful connection is made; like the sun has suddenly broke free from the clouds.  Yet, at other times the healing process can be slow and tough and dark; like you're walking through deep sludge.  

I currently work with adults on a 1:1 basis and offer clients outdoor therapy, traditional room based sessions or remote therapy - either online or by telephone (dependant on Covid restrictions). 

I understand choosing a therapist, and then making contact, can feel like a huge step which is why I offer a complimentary initial 30 minute consultation via Zoom.
