Lois Elliot, director of the centre, said she wanted the relocated service to be “part of the community here and contribute to those who live in Highgate”.

The new offices will be in Highgate High Street, after moving from Muswell Hill at the end of last year.

The invite was particularly relevent to Ms West, who has previously worked with refugee survivors from Kosovo.

She said: “I am a basic counsellor myself and I know how important it is to have wonderful counselling support, as I have watched these refugees grow and have families of their own.
