Counselling in North London, London
Psychotherapist, MSc, MBACP
As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where I can help you gain insight into the less conscious aspects of your thinking, behaviour and feelings. I can offer brief focused counselling where we can address a current situation, as well as longer term psychotherapy where we can work together to disentangle deeper rooted difficulties which may have built up over time as a result of your earliest experiences.
Counsellor, MA, MBACP
People come to therapy for many reasons. We all face times in our lives when we find ourselves struggling and don't know what to do, or where to turn. I offer a safe, confidential space to explore whatever is troubling you, so that we can work together to find new ways forward.

Life is a journey and sometimes you need an empathic psychotherapist to share your struggles and help you to make sense of them. It may be the time for you to switch off the internal critic and take the first step to give yourself permission to bloom. We are all unique individuals and therefore I adapt the therapy to suit you, rather than working in a formulaic way. I like to work in a way that is supported by evidence. I use both psychodynamic and attachment theory, as a basis for understanding, as neuroscience supports such an approach.
Does life feel like it is getting on top of you? Could you benefit from someone to talk to? Would you like to explore your thoughts and feelings?. At times life can be stressful and challenging. Counselling could be the first steps which allows you to explore your thoughts, feelings and your behavior I offer a safe and supportive space to adults and young people where you can explore any worries or difficulties in the strictest confidence.
Body Psychotherapy is a holistic form of psychotherapy which naturally incorporates the body within the psychotherapeutic process. Our life experiences are experienced in the mind, and also felt, sensed and held in our bodies. As in other forms of psychotherapy, we work together to understand and therapeutically work through the issues you face. Together, we explore your skills and talents that you can utilise and explore the ability and capacity to heal, develop self-awareness and open the way for new modes of being. The support, growth and transformation occur through the quality of the relationship we form together.
Psychotherapist, MA, MBACP
Every client is unique, so my work with you involves an exploration and understanding of your life and experience from birth to present, including unconscious processes and dreams. I seek to understand thought patterns, fears, obstacles and unhelpful perceptions that stand in the way of love and success. You are encouraged to talk about and understand your feelings, and to learn to distinguish between truth and fear.

Psychologist, HCPC - Clin. Psych.
I’m a clinical psychologist offering private therapy alongside my role as a senior psychologist in the NHS. I draw on personal and professional experience to offer guidance within a warm, non-judgemental space. I like to work together with my client, exploring their needs and preferences and then offering ideas informed by a range of psychological models. The models I draw on most are Schema Therapy and third-wave CBT therapies such as ACT and CFT. Often our work involves uncovering and strengthening resources that people already have or getting in touch with lost values.

Counselling offers a unique opportunity to pay focused attention to anything that you might want to talk about. This happens in an environment that feels safe, trusting and free of judgement. By exploring your past experiences, we can make connections in relation to your present circumstances.

I know how hard it can be to reach out and take the first step when you need help. A problem can become so large that it takes over most of your life. It can be something from the past that refuses to stay buried or a current situation that you can't move beyond. Whether it's depression, anxiety, bereavement, stress or a relationship breaking down, you can't see a way out and you feel overwhelmed. Sometimes it's different, you've reached a point in your life when you know that something needs to change, or maybe change is being forced on you. You feel trapped or stuck. You want to live life, but don't know how.
Psychotherapist, MBACP Accred
Life can sometimes feel hard. You may be struggling with your relationships, work or life in general. If you are finding it difficult to get through this, and to make a change for the better, I can help you. I know how earlier experiences can influence current feelings and actions, and by understanding them yourself you can start to make positive changes. I also have additional training and understanding of working with couples who are experiencing relationship difficulties and anyone who is struggling with loss and grief.
We all feel overwhelmed at times, and these feelings can be transient or more long-lasting. It can be helpful to explore your thoughts and emotions in a safe, non-judgmental space. I am a BACP-registered integrative counsellor, which means I draw on a range of theories to support our work together. Therapy offers an opportunity to look at your life, relationships and problems from a new perspective. I believe therapy can help people to understand their difficulties and experiences, and make positive changes in their lives.

Psychotherapist, COSRT Accred
My goal is to give my clients the safe space to express their sexual concerns, to feel empowered and to see themselves as the star and director in their own show, with self compassion and autonomy at the forefront of every interaction. I take a pluralistic approach that necessitates collaborating with my clients to help them achieve their goals in an open, non judgmental and empathetic safe space. I predominantly work with people of all genders and sexualities and relationship constellations from the black community, LGBTQIA and other minority ethnic groups with a wide range of relationship and intimacy concerns.

It takes courage to seek support, therefore I offer a confidential space where you can safely explore the particular situation you find yourself in. This may mean you come with a specific problem, anxiety, crisis or perhaps a vaguer sense that something doesn't feel quite right for you. Everyday life does not always leave room for reflection or questioning, therefore carving out a regular space to wonder, alongside another person about yourself, can be a powerful way to uncover how past experiences and relationships may have impacted the way things are now, whilst identifying how you would like things to be in the future.
As a seasoned practitioner in counselling, I operate a private practice situated in North London. My counselling services are available in-person, online, and through telephone consultations. I provide a secure and confidential environment to help clients make sense of their difficult emotions. I believe in collaborating with individuals or couples to address their specific requirements and determine the most effective way to achieve positive change. My credentials include qualifications in Family, Children's & Adult Counselling and Systemic Practice. I employ a range of methodologies in this field for both short- and long term.
People seek therapy and counselling for all kinds of reasons: to solve problems, improve wellbeing, making sense of their past or build more meaningul futures. I've worked with people from many backgrounds and ages, all with varied life experiences, values, and goals. With years of experience in the NHS and private practice, I can help with Depression, Anxiety (including OCD) and psychosis. I have a special interest in complex emotional difficulties, personality disorder, identity, addiction and sexuality.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
