About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist offering short and long term therapy in Hornsey and Holloway. Whether you are thinking of coming to therapy at a time of crisis, or at a time to understand more fully what is happening in your life, talking with a therapist can be very helpful. I will provide a safe and confidential space and support you to explore thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that may affect the way you think about and relate to yourself and others. Please feel free to telephone or email me if you would like to ask any questions about how I work, the process of beginning therapy, or to arrange an initial, confidential consultation.

I have over twenty year's experience of working as a therapist and social worker with children, adults, couples and families in the statutory and charity sector, and as a private practitioner.

I have specialist expertise in the area of domestic violence, the emotional effects of crime, and the impact of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. I have extensive experience of working therapeutically with children, young people, and families around a range of issues, including relationship breakdown.

I have a particular interest in the impact of disrupted attachment on current relationships.

I receive continuous professional support and development to ensure good practice.
