Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Who do I work with? Adults and Couples
How do I work? Face-to-Face and Online
Where am I based? North West London
I am a BACP accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist with over 16 years’ experience of working with individuals and couples. I have a private practice where I offer a safe and confidential environment in which to reflect and process feelings.
I have a specialist interest in neurodiversity, supporting people with Autism and ADHD, in addition to their family members/carers. Working with the charity Mencap for over 17 years supporting families and carers of children with learning disabilities, has given me a good understanding of the daily struggles that people on the autistic spectrum along with their families, have to cope with.
I believe it is important to provide an emotionally secure and non-judgemental environment where people can feel heard and understood, when so often they may be misunderstood. I have supported many neurodiverse clients, helping them to express and make sense of their feelings, thereby promoting self-confidence and positivity within their lives.
Ways of Working
I am currently working both remotely and also face-to-face, from a dedicated therapeutic space in Mill Hill, North West London. Appointments are available weekdays or evenings.
Each session lasts 50 minutes (60 mins for couples) and the number of sessions can either be open-ended, or short term with an agreed number of sessions. I feel it important to address each client’s needs individually and am happy to discuss any worries, expectations, or goals for counselling. The first session is a time to discuss the most helpful way of working together, clients can then book further appointments if they wish.
