I provide one-to-one counselling via secure online platforms such as Zoom and Skype, via the telephone and face to face in North London. In very specific circumstances I also occasionally offer home visits.
I am a fully qualified, Trauma Informed, Integrative Counsellor offering a safe, judgement free, supportive and empathic space for you to explore your present and past experiences.
Being an Integrative Therapist means I draw on and incorporate various approaches to therapy in order to provide you with a more personalised counselling service that suits you, your current situation and your goals. Trauma Informed practice means that my approach to working with people who have experienced trauma is very much non-pathologizing. All trauma responses are a natural part of the healing process and my goal is to help you to understand this process so that you can move through it with understanding and support.
I can offer you a safe space where you will feel respected, heard and supported.
My counselling approach is both relaxed and interactive, and I have incorporated techniques from various schools of counselling, writers and teachers in this field. I believe deeply in empowering individuals to enable them to make changes in their lives. I employ person centred, existential, psychodynamic and solution focused techniques, deep empathic listening, reflection and analysis. I have a particular interest in the impact trauma can have on the body and in working with individuals who have experienced rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse.
Other issues I work with include, but are not limited to; anxiety, depression, domestic violence, trauma, stress and neurodiversity.
Although there is still some stigma attached to taking up therapy and discussing mental health, taking the time to explore and talk about our emotional needs and mental health can be extremely rewarding. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch – I would be happy to discuss whatever is on your mind.
