How I can help you

Substance misuse counselling in Enfield


Alcohol
Dual diagnosis

Over the years I have worked with people from all walks of life and from many different backgrounds, ages and cultures. This has provided me with a deeper insight and understanding of how life events can profoundly affect a person’s sense of well-being. I have gained experience of working with people, both children and adults who experience a broad spectrum of psychological and mental health challenges. Whether it is anxiety and stress caused by job loss or relationship breakup, depression as a result of a bereavement, illness, loss or homelessness, post-traumatic stress disorder, mood disorders, addictions, eating disorders or phobias.  I have travelled widely and have gained an insight into different cultures and medical practices. I have an interest in traditional healing including use of acupuncture, meditation, herbalism and homeopathy.

I am a London-based Counsellor and qualified Art Therapist. I am a CPCAB certified Children’s Counsellor and I am currently undertaking further training for the schools-based Level 5 Certificate in Children’s Counselling at the national children’s charity, Place2be. I formerly worked in a clinical  capacity  in acute adult in-patient and community psychiatric and substance misuse services where I was responsible for managing therapeutic and counselling services. I have worked within organisations for the homeless  and my last clinical post  was based at a South London NHS Trust.  I collaborated on social and clinical research studies prior to joining the Consultancy team at the national charity, Drugscope. I established myself in private practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist in 2016.
