About me and my therapy practice
We all face emotional difficulties at some point that stop us from enjoying life as much as we would like. Talking to friends and family can be helpful, but sometimes this isn't possible or doesn't feel enough.
Whether you're finding things challenging, or you have a sense that you could be more connected with yourself and others in your life, counselling can offer a unique opportunity to explore whatever is troubling you, and can help by providing you with support and understanding.
As a UKCP accredited and BACP registered integrative counsellor/ psychotherapist I work with a wide range of issues including anxiety, low self-esteem, issues from childhood, challenges with relationships, and bereavement and depression. I'm also aware of the issues surrounding prescribed drug dependence and withdrawal.
Exploring emotions can be daunting, but having someone to support you can make the journey easier.
How I work
I aim to provide a safe, caring, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore the issues that prompted you to seek counselling.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA/Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from Middlesex University, having trained at The Minster Centre in London. As well as seeing clients in private practice in Seven Sisters (N15), I have been an Honorary Psychotherapist in a specialist NHS service, and have also worked as a community bereavement counsellor with the Haringey Bereavement Service which is run by St Joseph’s Hospice, Hackney.
My first session
What to expect when we first meet
After our first communication we can arrange an initial assessment. The aim of this is to meet face to face, and for you to see whether you would like to work with me as your therapist. The assessment is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions about how I work. If you decide to come to therapy, the sessions are at the same time every week for 50 minutes.
