I am a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Transactional Analysis.
Currently working as a counsellor at an NHS North London GP practice as well as private practice.
Previous psychotherapy and counselling experience involves Honorary Counsellor at Mind. Low cost psychotherapy at The Awareness Centre. Psychotherapeutic counsellor in primary care; NHS GP surgeries in Kentish Town, Golders Green and Oval.
A member of the two regulatory psychotherapy and counselling organisations; UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). A member of UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) and EATA (European Association for Transactional Analysis) and of The Berne Institute, UK.
In training for an MSc in Transactional Analysis – with a love of existential therapy, an interest in psycho dynamic therapy, a curiosity in Gestalt therapy and an open mind.
Other qualifications include: MA in Creative Writing, a BA(Hons) in Film and a Post Graduate Diploma in Acting.
The arts dominated my working life for the about twenty years and though I have made the transition into psychotherapy and counselling I view them as close companions. Writing and acting were always intensely healing in their infinite capacity for self-expression and understanding of the self and the other. I continue to do both. Moderately.
