Counselling and Psychotherapy

There are many reasons for embarking on therapy - often we undertake this commitment because our problems are taking over our lives, causing distress, and hiding things isn't working anymore. Each one of us, at certain points in our lives, faces an emotional dead end.

One of the most valuable aspects of therapy is that we don't have to pretend; we are free to be ourselves, to explore the way we are living, the choices we are making and to face our disappointments and frustrations in a safe and non-judgemental environment.

I am a fully qualified UKCP registered psychotherapist offering counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups at a convenient location in North London (10 minutes walk from the Finchley Road underground station). My psychotherapy experience includes working at an NHS psychotherapy service in a hospital setting for several years. My original background was in managerial positions in the corporate world so I understand many of the pressures and expectations of the workplace.

Research shows that a key factor in successful therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. Finding the right person is important. I hope this website gives you some idea of who I am and the way that I work. If you would like to book an initial session for us to meet, with no obligation, then please contact me to make an appointment.
