I have a long career working with those struggling to make sense of their difficulties. The decision to start therapy can be challenging, I therefore provide a space where your experiences can be explored in a compassionate, confidential and collaborative way. At a time when it seems hard to make sense of things in your life that are causing you distress this can be difficult and life can feel unfulfilling.

My private counselling practice is called At Peace Counselling. I chose this name for my practice, because of a definition of peace that I came across some time ago that resonated with me. PEACE - IT DOES NOT MEAN TO BE IN A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO NOISE, TROUBLE OR HARD WORK, IT MEANS TO BE IN THE MIDST OF THOSE THINGS, AND STILL BE CALM IN YOUR HEART. My practice is based in locations at Friern Barnet and Harley Street. My aim as a counsellor is to help my clients to get to the place where they feel at peace with themselves so that they feel better equipped to manage the complications that everyday life can throw at all of us.

Making the first step to accept that things aren't working can feel daunting. Perhaps you know exactly what you want to change or perhaps you have lost sight of what you want along the way. An initial assessment can help us piece together what isn't working and identify what might help you break out of the cycle of feeling stuck in unhelpful patterns. My clients often say that having a supportive space to process difficult feelings balanced with an active method which empowers them in their recovery is what is most helpful about therapy. My approach begins with the assumption that we all have strengths that we just need to uncover.

Most people want to feel good within themselves and within their lives. I don’t think this is too much to ask! If obstacles have previously prevented this, it does not mean the future need be the same. Change is always possible and often we need a helping hand. I am passionate about collaboration as the most empowering route on a therapeutic journey. You have the strength and the answers and together we can make sense of any hurt, obstacle or fear.

Seeking therapy can be daunting, especially for the first time. Some people do so because of a specific issue or concern, while other can't quite put their finger on what troubles them, but just feel something isn't right and they could use support. Usually, we seek therapy because we need something to change or because we need answers. I believe therapy is most successful when it helps you find your own answers and make your own changes and, crucially, to ask yourself the questions that count.

There are several reasons why people seek therapy. Every human story is unique and complex; every issue is worth listening to. Working with clients of diverse backgrounds, sharing their narratives and accompanying them in unravelling their stories has been a privilege for me as a counsellor. Trained as an Existential psychotherapist, I offer counselling to adults and adolescents. My approach is person centred with the intention of exploring and understanding each individual's unique personal experiences and needs. I believe that therapy can help us to achieve a greater understanding of ourselves and others and boost resilience.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in London are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in London then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in London, or Child Psychologists in London.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like London psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in London specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
