Counselling in London and Hertfordshire.
At times in our lives we encounter stressful situations or become anxious or depressed. These can often come as a surprise, or perhaps with no obvious cause, leading us to feel confused, stuck, isolated and overwhelmed.
Seeking help in these circumstances can be a daunting process, particularly as this may involve events, emotions and parts of our internal world that are difficult to face up to.
Turning to therapy can be in response to anything from traumatic events such as bereavement, relationship breakdown or job loss, to deeper, more complex issues stemming from our early life and from our closest relationships. Whatever the source, the negative impact on our daily lives can quickly become a problem.
I see therapy as a valuable, unique and enriching emotional relationship in which you and I can unpack together what is proving too difficult to be tackled alone.
For those seeking therapy, I create a friendly, empathic and confidential environment, ensuring a comfortable and safe space in which to explore deep-seated and difficult issues together.
I am a fully qualified psychodynamic therapist, and a registered member of the BACP, whose ethical guidelines I firmly uphold in my work.
As well as running my private practice, I volunteer with Music Support, a charity providing mental health support within all areas of the music industry. I also volunteer at the mental health charity Mind In Barnet, and for three years was an Associate Student Counsellor at London Metropolitan University. I also do extensive short-term work with EAPs (Employee Assistance Programmes).
