I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, specialising in working with adults. I offer a non-judgemental space to explore where you are, your concerns and how to move forward. Many of us experience difficulties in our lives and it can be helpful to talk to a trained therapist.
I work with wide ranging issues but specialise in cancer care.
I also offer supervision to fellow clinicians – offering a supportive and reflective space to explore clinical work and the dynamics of your practice.
I am based in North Finchley, which is accessible from much of North London. There is ample free on street parking and buses run close by.
I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and work in the NHS where I offer specialist Cancer Counselling and I have been in private practice for many years.
I have wide ranging experience in mental health counselling together with extended experience of bereavement counselling within the charitable sector.
I am a supervisor for a local counselling service, supervise nursing staff at a hospital as well as volunteers for a national mental health charity.
My initial training was in psychodynamic counselling, however, over the years I have developed a flexible approach to my work which enables me to meet the needs of my clients.
The psychodynamic approach is that present difficulties have their roots in the past and that our early experiences and relationships have a bearing on the way in which we experience the world and form our relationships in our present life.
I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Psychotherapists and Counsellors (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics.
I provide a safe and confidential place for you to talk through your thoughts and feelings where you will feel understood, respected and supported. My approach enables you to explore and clarify your difficulties, gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your relationships, allowing you to find your own way of living in a more satisfying and resourceful way.
I offer both short- and long-term counselling and a flexible approach to supervision depending on your clinical needs.
Issues that arise in my work are varied and include:
This list is not exhaustive.
Our initial session will give me an opportunity to assess your needs and expectations and to give us a chance to get to know each other, to see if we can work together. After the initial assessment session, should you wish to proceed, we will arrange to meet on the same day and time of each week.
A session is 50 minutes-long and cost £50. Payment is in cash or by bank transfer.
