About me and my therapy practice

I offer professional, confidential non-judgmental counselling and therapy to men and women, individuals and couples in North London  including the areas of;  Crouch End, Turnpike Lane, Manor House, Wood Green, Tottenham and Muswell Hill.  I offer special rates to counselling students and some consessions for those on low income if available.

 I am located 5mins walk from Turnpike Lane on the Piccadilly line, however because of the current Covid-19 emergency I cannot offer face to face counselling at present (until the guidance changes) but I am pleased to offer sessions by Skype, Zoom, phone and Whatsapp video.

My practice is inclusive and available regardless of sexuality, age, culture, race and disability. As a Relate trained counsellor I have experience with working with couples and relationship problems. I  have many years experience of working with vulnerable women, domestic violence and abuse.  

 I have over 15 years counselling experience and graduated from University of East London and Relate. I hold a (CPCAB) Level 5 (Adv. Dip) in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I am a registered member of BACP and abide by the ethical code.

People are drawn to therapy for many reasons, such as when one's life has been turned upside down by major traumatic events such as the present Covoid-19 crisis, the breakdown of a relationship, the loss of a job, domestic violence, sexual abuse or bereavement, mental and physical health,  addictions and addictive behaviours, PTSD, all of this can be addressed in therapy.

Counselling also offers us the opportunity to simply understand ourselves better. It can enable you to find new paths to inner peace and to fulfil your dreams. You do not need to be unhappy to access therapy and counselling.
