You have contacted my website, and are considering counselling or therapy, but are not sure. Counselling is a journey, a journey of discovery and exploration. Discovery of yourself, exploration of your feelings.
If you have concerns , if you feel you don't know how to express them because you are not sure where to start, counselling, talking to a counsellor, will help you find ways to clarify your thoughts. You might have concerns about:
- suffering from abuse,
- health-related issues,
- problems at work,
- feeling depressed,
- a diagnosis of cancer and other serious conditions.
Some people access counselling and therapy just in order to know themselves better.
Location & Contact
I have been a practising counsellor and couple therapist for people in Golders Green, North West London,( within easy reach reach of Hampstead, St John's Wood, Hendon, Brent Cross, Bushey, Stanmore) for over 25 years and am committed to providing counselling and couple therapy in a safe, strictly confidential and non-judgemental environment. I will listen carefully and patiently to you.
As well as working in private practice, I have been Specialist Counsellor in the Royal Free Hospital NHS Trust for over 20 years, with patients with critical life threatening conditions, and their families, as well as bereaved people.
My counselling/therapy room is easily accessible, very near Brent Cross Shopping Centre.If you live in Hampstead or Hendon I am only five to ten minutes away.
I work with individuals or couples. Counselling/therapy carries on for as long as you feel you need it.
If you are bereaved, you want to speak to someone and make sense of what has been happening. It might take a long time to feel you can face the world, and you don’t want to talk to your friends because you fear they might not understand. As a therapist I have much experience in this field and you can feel confident that I will listen to you with care and empathy.

“ Dear Jacqueline, after three session with you on ZOOM, i started to know how to deal with my unease of lockdown and my fear of COVID. You are holding my hand virtually on line, and i look forward to our weekly sessions. Now I can start to look at what is REALLY bothering me in my life....”
A heartfelt message from Roshie:

A short moving message received a while ago:
"....I felt very quickly that I had met someone I didn't have to be brave with. It helped to be allowed to let everything tumble out, and to be able to choke up and have someone completely understand that and be patient with it. " Kashmira
A recent note received from a couple I saw for a few months:
".....We have learnt how to communicate lovingly with each other. Thank you. We should have met you years ago!" John and Daniella.
