Life changes and challenges come in different forms at different times in our lives. Therapy can help you manage the challenges and make the changes you want.
People often choose to come to therapy because they are experiencing difficulties or distress in their lives. But you don’t have to be in crisis to have therapy.
At the heart of therapy is a collaborative relationship. A relationship built on trust, honesty and compassion.
Therapy includes counselling, psychotherapy and coaching. My approach is integrative and relational. I draw on my training and experience in the creative arts, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and coaching to support our work together. We will agree and work in a way that suits your needs and goals.
We will work in the present but may explore past life events and relationships to help you understand your emotions, thoughts and behaviours.
As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am committed to providing a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space.
Contact me by email or text (07568308610) to arrange an initial session online (Zoom). The initial session is about getting to know each other, exploring what brings you to therapy, your hopes for therapy and how we might work together. It is important that there is a ‘fit’ between therapist and client.
I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist and coach. I have a background in the creative arts and education. I work with adults and young people (16yrs+), practicing in person in North London (walking therapy) and online nationally and internationally.
I work with clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, identity, and self-worth. Clients who are experiencing life transitions and are looking for balance and purpose. This includes young people finding their way through early adulthood, parents managing the competing demands of family, work and their own life, and those transitioning to retirement.
I value and respect diversity and strive to be inclusive.
As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I abide by the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and the Supplementary Guidance for Working Online. I am committed to fulfilling BACP requirements for continuing professional development and regularly undertake training and supervision.
I am a register psychotherapist with Vitality Health Insurance and Aviva Insurance.
Contact me by email or text to arrange an initial session online (Zoom). The initial session is about getting to know each other, exploring what brings you to therapy, your hopes for therapy and how we might work together. It is important that there is a ‘fit’ between therapist and client.
Based on your hopes or goals for therapy and your preferences we may work on a focused and specific goal/s or a more open exploratory inquiry of a theme or issue.
You will know when it is right for you to end therapy. Endings are important. Ideally, we will discuss, plan and work towards your therapy ending together. If you decide to end therapy before a planned ending it is beneficial to have a final ending session.
We will regularly review our work together and reflect on your goals and direction for therapy.
I work face to face in Islington, North London, walking in parks and green spaces, and online via Zoom or WhatsApp.
To work online you will need a stable internet connection and a private space where you can talk comfortably and uninterrupted by other people or pets. Using headphones can improve the sound quality and provides more privacy.
I operate a one week rescheduling and cancellation policy, which means that I will not charge a fee if you give notice of one week or more. If you cancel with less than one week’s notice, I charge the full fee.
I work in person in Central and North London and online via Zoom or WhatsApp.
I work from rooms at Stillpoint Spaces London, located in Clerkenwell near to Farringdon, Angel Islington, King’s Cross St Pancras and the City.
I offer in person walking therapy in the Finsbury Park N4 area, bordering Haringey, Hackney, and Islington, and in easy reach of Manor House, Seven Sisters, Stoke Newington, Crouch End, Muswell Hill, and Archway.
