- Anne TonksCounselling and PsychotherapyAnne TonksCounselling and Psychotherapy
I offer long and short term Counselling and Psychotherapy for individuals who are experiencing difficult periods or crises in their life and who want support to explore these issues, make some sense of them and develop new perspectives and directions.
Issues I work with include:
Anxiety and Panic Attacks; Depression; Abuse and Trauma experienced in childhood and / or adulthood; Relationship and Intimacy difficulties; Loss and Bereavement; Identity issues – who am I?; Loss of Meaning and Purpose in life; Self-confidence and Self-esteem issues; Stress.
I aim to provide a supportive and confidential space in which a trusting relationship can develop and explore the issues, discover the person’s own inner resources and new ways of being. It is widely recognised that the therapeutic relationship is important in facilitating the process of healing and growth.
I have a relational and integrative approach which incorporates several psychological theories including Psychodynamic Theory, Psychosynthesis and Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT).
Psychodynamic Theory is concerned with issues that have developed in childhood and still affect us today.
Psychosynthesis considers the whole person: body, feelings, mind, sexuality and spirituality. It is concerned with our relationship to ourselves and others, periods of transition in our lives, personal goals and aspirations.
AIT is a gentle, wholistic and effective trauma treatment or energy treatment which promotes psychological, physical and spiritual healing. It treats not just the symptoms but the originating causes of present day difficulties (www.ait-uk-europe.com).
I studied Psychology at degree level and applied it to my work as a Social Worker for many years prior to training as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I attained my Diploma in Counselling from the Institute of Psychosynthesis in 2005 and my MA in Psychotherapy from the Psychosynthesis Education Trust, accredited by the University of East London in 2014. I have practiced at Keats since 2002.

- Daniele WicheneEMDR, Family TherapyDaniele WicheneEMDR, Family Therapy
As a systemic therapist and an EMDR practitioner, I see Connection as the key that opens windows and doors to a preferred future: by making better intellectual and emotional sense of the complex relationships between brain, mind and body we enable the building of bridges between people - and vice versa, because we are all built the same, but each of us has a different story, and many stories to tell.
My sessions last 90 minutes. I don't have to see people weekly, although this can be the case; often we leave two to three weeks between sessions, to allow for experiencing and testing the impact of the changes of perspective envisaged during our sessions. We decide on the frequency together.
EMDR provides an extraordinary, genuine, deep and lasting liberation from old, entrenched traumatic beliefs and patterns, by making use and making sense of the physical manifestations of traumatic experiences. Most people will be amazed at how quickly and completely they let go of and recover from years of disabling panic and anguish.
I have a background in psychoanalytical and psychodynamic theory, and am a full member of the Association of Family Therapy and of the EMDR Association for UK and Ireland. I worked for 15 years in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health and am now working privately in Enfield and London.

- Edna King-NewellSpeech and Language Therapist, CounsellingEdna King-NewellSpeech and Language Therapist, Counselling
I am a Highly Specialist Speech and Language therapist with many years of NHS and private sector experience. I have experience of working with a wide range of children and adults and I specialise in Learning Disabilities, Autism, Augmentative and Alternative Communication, including high tech devices such as Eye Gaze, iPads with specialist communication software and low tech visual aids, Makaton signing, PECS etc. I work with stammering of all ages. I can assist with speech sound difficulties, language development delay/disorder, developmental delay disorder and social skills training.

I offer speech and language therapy in an empathic, warm and friendly manner based in the heart of Enfield Town. Fees: £75 per assessment session £50 per follow up therapy session.
As a person-centred counsellor, my aim is to provide a genuine, caring service in the knowledge of how daunting but powerful counselling can be. We all have our own journey in life to navigate and I truly understand the need for a confidential, empathic, non-judgmental listener in those challenging times. As an experienced speech and language therapist in learning difficulties and complex needs, I am able to break down barriers in communication to enable everybody to find a way to express themselves whatever their level of ability in life. I am aware of the stress and anxiety related to disabilities and welcome all from this walk of life, including parents and carers. My counselling service aims to be kind, caring, honest but gentle because life can be tough.
I also have specialist knowledge of working with women who have experienced domestic violence and sexual abuse and have a Masters degree in this particular area. I have experience of working in a women's centre and welcome women seeking a safe place to talk in a gentle, non-judgemental way.
Take things at your own pace. Start to find your own solutions
We all have our past experiences. Of course, we need to examine the past but it is equally important to deal with the ‘here and now’ when we are feeling concerned, anxious, stressed or sad. I became a person centred counsellor because on my own personal counselling journey, I often wanted to be listened to about what was going in the present instead of a pressure to default analyse the past right away. We are all at different stages of our journeys and I respect that.
You choose the pace and depth you want to take and I will facilitate you.

- Marged CotherNutritionist, fitness professional and health coachMarged CotherNutritionist, fitness professional and health coach
I am Marged Cother, a registered Nutritionist, fitness professional and health coach.
While working in the City for over 10 years, I trained (too) hard, worked (too) hard and started to suffer. I was stressed, tired, my periods were irregular and my husband and I wanted to start a family. I had been interested in nutrition for many years, having qualified as a fitness instructor after losing a lot of weight in my 20s. And it became a true calling for me - I wanted to learn how to heal myself and others and eventually took the plunge despite holding down a senior role in a global bank.
I graduated with distinction after an intensive 3 year programme at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, including over 200 clinical hours seeing clients in the student clinic.
I am registered with British Association of Nutritional Therapists (BANT), the regulatory body that oversees nutritional therapists in the UK and the Complementary and Natural Health Council (CNHC), the register for complementary health practitioners who meet UK standards.
I have also been qualified as a fitness professional since 2007, and am a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals.
With the continual stream of information about food at our fingertips, sometimes it can be overwhelming. Some people tell me they don't know what to eat anymore, and don't know how best to help themselves. I believe that food can be a powerful tool for health - it is something to be enjoyed, not feared.
I'll cut through the noise, use the latest research and provide down to earth, real-life solutions to help you get to the heart of your health issues, using a blend of scientific and naturopathic approaches.
What Can A Nutritionist Help With?
Nutrition and functional medicine can be a powerful approach for a wide range of issues including sugar cravings, stress, weight loss, hormone imbalance, digestive issues, bloating, fertility, stress, skin issues and low energy, amongst many others.
Who Do I Work With?
While I have a particular interest in fertility, hormones, energy, skin issues, stress management and gut health, I love to work with a variety of people to help them restore their health and get their spark back.
Please contact me on 07900135942 to book a free 15 minute call to find out how you can improve your health and wellbeing.
I first met Marged in 2016 where I presented with extreme lethargy and inability to lose weight, which was having an negative effect on my overall wellbeing.
After extensive and thorough questions Marged provided me with a highly nutritional and balanced diet. With regular contact she ensured I was able to follow the plan she had put in place and was compassionate, supportive and professional throughout.
With a focus on building a healthy relationship with food, Marged has helped me achieve and maintain my main health goals as well as inspiring me to take better care of my overall wellness. I would happily recommend Marged as a Nutritionist.

- Jazmin YanezDeep Tissue MassageJazmin YanezDeep Tissue Massage
Jazmin is a qualified massage therapist and member of MTI (Massage Training Institute). She first became interested in massage when she discovered its wide ranging benefits after sustaining an injury as a recreational runner while training for a half marathon. Ever since, her interest in pain relief and relaxation has grown steadily. Currently training on sports massage and remedial soft tissue therapy, Jazmin has an integrative approach mixing different techniques for maximum effect to address clients needs.
The therapeutic benefits of massage have been used for centuries to help address imbalances in the body and support wellbeing. It can help to relax the muscles, release tension and re set the mind.
Deep tissue massage
Working on deeper muscle layers can help release patterns of tension. Deep tissue massage helps to loosen up the tissue relieving aches and pains and encouraging deep relaxation. People often complain of tender spots or ‘knots’ which can be targeted with deep tissue techniques.
Myofascial release can help release restrictions within the connective tissue (or fascia), thus enabling stuck, stiffened and dehydrated areas to become soft and flexible again. It can help to increase mobilisation and decrease stiffness that may result from chronic conditions or injury.
It entails a variety of techniques to soothe muscles and promote relaxation. With gentle and long strokes in the direction of the heart, holistic massage stimulates circulation and flush of metabolic waste. It provides a general sense of wellbeing and can help relieve stress and fatigue.
“I usually have so much tension and pain on my back...however Jazmin applies the correct pressure every time, leaving me super refreshed and relaxed. She knows exactly the right areas to work on”
