Welcome to my website. I am a UKCP Registered counsellor working in North London. I have been practising as a counsellor since 2002.
I work from a deep respect for you and who you are. My approach to counselling is non-directive, which means that I do not tell how how to live your life. My task is to help you to understand yourself better and through that understanding, to find what’s right for you.
I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental counselling environment.
“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
Carl Rogers – Therapist and Founder of the Person-Centred Approach
I hope you find the answers here to any questions you may have. If not – please feel free to contact me and ask.
I work with individuals either in an exploratory open-ended way, or in a focussed way on a specific issue for an agreed time period.
I work with you as a whole person, so can help with most issues. I recognise that real-life issues are complicated and multi-faceted, so work in a way that acknowledges this complexity and the need to look at problems from many angles.
I welcome diversity in my practice, working with men, women and others who are straight, gay, lesbian or transgender. I am experienced in working with people from different cultural and religious backgrounds, whether Jewish, Moslem, Hindu or Christian, and I am attentive to your own particular cultural viewpoint and needs.
I have extensive experience of working with: Trauma • Depression • Eating Disorders • Anxiety • Gender • Sexuality • Kink • Anger • Workplace Problems • Relationships • Bullying •Bereavement • Childhood Abuse • Personal Development • Family Problems • Step-Families • Self-Esteem • Divorce • Stress • Addiction and many others.
