Previously a Naturopath, practising alternative health medicine, my work with people’s physical conditions made me realise that I had the potential to heal on a deeper level. The transition to talking therapy felt organic and I embarked on a career in counselling and psychotherapy.
I trained at the Minster Centre, a leading Integrative psychotherapy college in London, graduating with a Masters Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I offer a calm space where you can be yourself and feel safe to talk about anything that is on your mind in the knowledge that it will be kept confidential. At times I may have to challenge you but always with the intention to remain non-judgemental or critical. The purpose is to help you find your sense of authentic self and enable you to achieve a positive change.
I consider myself a warm, open-minded and empathetic person. I am passionate about my work and take pride in witnessing people making lasting changes in their lives.
In addition to my work in private practice I work as a counsellor at Chai Cancer Care - a Jewish charity that treats cancer patients and their families.
I have previously volunteered as a therapist at Women and Health in Camden, Highbury Counselling Service, conducted assessments at the Bereavement Centre in Kentish Town and I have extensive experience working within the NHS IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies).
I work with individuals and couples aged 18 and over. I work in complete confidentiality unless there is risk to yourself or others in which case I will discuss possible disclosure with you. The therapy is tailored to individual needs and can be long-or short-term.
