About me and my therapy practice

My background is as a health professional. I have  particular interest in fertility and in adoption. I am registered with OFSTED (SC359792) to provide adoption support to adults. The judgements on all aspects of my work following my most recent inspection in 2019 were “Good”.  I have experience of exploring bereavement with clients. This may be from a recent loss, or may have been triggered from something which occurred in the past.  I am also interested in helping  people who have themselves, or have had someone close to them, been given a life-changing diagnosis

I am an advocate of life-long learning.

Practice description

I work in a consulting room in North London, easily accessible by public transport. Although experienced with longterm analytic work, I understand that many people want short term support to explore particular issues. I therefore offer brief therapy of 10-12 weeks, and fixed term therapy for a longer duration agreed with the client. I work via Zoom, FaceTime and Skype, and can offer telephone counselling

My first session

The first time we meet, I will ask  for some general personal information and try and understand how safe you are feeling in regard to you mental state.  I will ask you to tell me some of your story, and what has brought you for therapy, and whether you have had previous experience of therapy before.  

We can then agree a 'contract' for our work together including the duration, frequency and cost.
