I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist offering short and long term therapy in Holloway, North London. Whether you are thinking of coming to therapy at a time of crisis, or at a time to understand more fully what is happening in your life, talking with a therapist can be very helpful. I will provide a safe and confidential space and support you to explore thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that may affect the way you think about and relate to yourself and others.
Please feel free to telephone or email me if you would like to ask any questions about how I work, the process of beginning therapy, or to arrange an initial confidential consultation.
In our first session we will discuss and consider your concerns and any thoughts and feelings you have about therapy. We will discuss how we can work together, and what you would like to get out of meetings.
I have over twenty year's experience of working with children, young people, adults, couples and families in both the statutory and charitable organisations. I currently offer private counselling/psychotherapy and also provide supervision to Social Care workers, therapists, and therapy trainees. I have worked with women, men, and children/young people, of all ages, ethnicity, backgrounds, and sexuality, who bring a range of issues, questions and concerns.
I have a Masters Degree in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy, and I have a further post graduate diploma in Systemic Practice; and a Certificate in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I am also a qualified registered Social Worker. I receive continuous professional support and development to ensure good practice.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their guidelines on confidentiality, code of ethics, and good practice. I am registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Social Worker, I hold a current enhanced Disclosure Certificate, and full professional insurance.
Areas of interest
I am experienced and trained to work with a broad range of issues, and I have extensive experience of working therapeutically with individuals, children/young people,and families.
Oral self reports are sought and noted at regular reviews during therapy and 3-6 months after therapy ends.
