I am BACP accredited integrative counsellor with a background in teaching, business management & nutrition. I use Existential, Person-Centred, and Psychodynamic approaches to tailor therapy to your needs. My experience is wide as I have worked for the NHS, multi-cultural charity organizations, and the national alcohol addiction service. Apart from my private practice I also work in psychology research.
Counselling can be hard, but I am there to support you throughout the process. My approach is holistic uniting body, mind and spirit, as I am interested in you as a whole. In therapy we would be looking at past events, your current situation, and future goals. We might also explore your health, relationships, values. I draw from your strengths to empower you, and I offer you ways to improve things. I believe the most healing element of therapy is the therapeutic relationship we create. I strive to be transparent and treat you as an equal part of this therapeutic journey worthy respect and attention. I offer you a relaxed space to talk where you get a better understanding of your circumstances and tools and skills to cope better.
I’m open to different ways of talking things through. We can use words, images, or even things-I have worked with various materials with my clients. We can choose a set number of sessions to focus on 1 or 2 particular issues you’d like to tackle, or I can guide a more exploratory open-ended therapy. I welcome clients of all faith, age, cultural background, and orientation. I work in Tufnell Park and also offer Skype/telephone counselling and therapy outdoors.
