Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Accredited and Registered Psychosynthesis Counsellor with a strong person-centred influence; Dr Carl Rogers.
I qualified as a Counsellor in 2000 and I have trained as an ILM Coach, an Emotional Freedom Techniques practitioner (EFT) and hold a certificate in Play Therapy. I also work as a Human Resources professional
and I am a Chartered member of Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
My private practice is based in Enfield and I work in a Hertfordshire school and a counselling centre in North London. I have the privilege to work with adults and young people providing both long term and short term therapy, coaching and supervision.
I started work with the Hertfordshire Youth Service in 1991 where I moved from voluntary work to paid work in
youth clubs and detached street work; dealing with relationship, social and drug issues, supporting sexual health and school refuser projects. Those years formed a solid foundation, which has led to me Counselling adults and young people and developing a skill for employee relations; supporting others through Coaching.
I am proud to deliver a professional service to all the adults and young people I work with; whether that be as a Counsellor, HR professional, Coach or EFT practitioner.
My private practice is in Enfield, EN1, where I work with adults and young people working through a range of issues including pre and post bereavement, self-esteem, self-awareness, relationship and family issues, work related stress, anger management, bullying, abuse, self-harm, travel anxiety, Asperger’s, the Autistic spectrum and animal bereavement (this list is not exhaustive). I am on the health insurance Private Practice Registers (PPR) for Aviva, Vitality Health and BUPA.
School Counselling, Supervision and Coaching:
I work independently as a School Counsellor providing group and individual Supervision, individual Counselling and Coaching for the members of staff and a Counselling provision for the students. The school is designated as an LD, ASD and SLCN school. I have been providing a counselling provision for the students since 2001 and the provision was extended to the staff in 2018 to support the schools wellbeing programme.
Counselling provides an opportunity to talk to someone who will be non-judgemental and is outside of your family, circle of friends and work colleagues. Counselling provides a space for you to talk to someone and be truly heard. I provide a confidential and safe therapeutic space to enable clients to explore the issues that are important to them.
I have over 20 years’ experience of counselling adults, children and young people in private practice, schools and community settings.
I am insured to practice as a Counsellor and EFT practitioner and I work to the BACP code of ethics.
