My Counselling Approach
There are a number of therapy approaches that counsellors are trained in, so it is important to consider carefully your expectations of counselling and of your counsellor.
I follow Carl Rogers’ Person Centred Approach to counselling. My aim is to offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space which is just for you to talk about those things that bother you.
I understand that it is not always easy to talk about problems and to express how you are feeling, however we will work together towards improving your emotional well-being around whatever has prompted you to seek help.
The Counselling Session
Your first session enables us to meet and discuss why you are looking for counselling. It is an opportunity to get a sense of how we will work together. If we are both happy to work together, we will meet weekly at the same time for 50 minutes for as long as you feel you need.
I am based in North London at the following location:
- City Road – Angel Islington (EC1V)
5 minutes walk from Angel tube station.
Buses from: Highbury and Islington (N5) / Archway (N19) / Holloway (N7) / Angel (N1) / Barnsbury (N1) / Clerkenwell (EC1A) / Barbican (EC2Y) / Old Street (EC1V) / Kings Cross (N1C).
Each weekly session of 50 minutes, the fee is £60.
If you are considering counselling and have any questions, please get in touch.
Working Creatively and Therapeutically with Art
I also offer image work in our sessions if that is something of individual interest. There are no expectations of being an artist, the focus of the work is on using art forms to work with issues to enable change and growth on a personal level.

BACP and Ethics
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) which means I have met their standards for registration.
I also adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework and the professional conduct procedure within it, valuing the best practices for the safety and effectiveness of our work together.
