Specialist in cultural/identity/transition *relationship problems *feeling low or depressed *anxiety *loss - of any form *stress *a general feeling of dissatisfaction and/or confusion.



Hi. Perhaps you're here because you're confused, down or frustrated.. Or maybe something just doesn't feel right but you don't know what. Either way, I'd be happy to help.

I frequently support people through:
*relationship problems
*feeling low or depressed
*loss - of any form
*culture/identity difficulties
*a general feeling of dissatisfaction and/or confusion.

I am a Senior Accredited counsellor/psychotherapist, supervisor (of other therapists) and trainer. I have nearly eight years of post-qualification experience: and have practised in the UK and the Netherlands privately; as well as managed an NHS counselling service in North London. Paying attention to professional ethics - especially whilst working online - is paramount to me; therapy is my passion and vocation.

Approach to treatment

My approach involves gently exploring the root causes of difficulties. I believe that clients know best where hurts/needs attention; and my expertise lies in helping to make sense and learn from those areas. My approach is commonly known as 'person-centred' or 'humanistic. I'm interested in exploring root causes - whilst recognising the need sometimes to balance this with symptom management
Please note that I say below that I can work with a variety of issues because my experience and research consistently show that more important than the specific content is the 'click' between client and therapist in meeting aims..
