Having originally qualified as an individual psychodynamic psychotherapist in 2003 (WPF) I then qualified as a couple psychotherapist (Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships) in 2012. I now work as a visiting couple therapist at TCCR alongside individual and couple work in private practice.
I have been a fully accredited member of the following professional bodies since 2003- the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC)and the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors (UKRC) In 2012 I became a member of the British Association for Couple Psychotherapy and Counselling, (BSCPC) adhering to their ethical guidelines which include regular supervision with a senior colleague for both individual and couple work.
My original training at WPF Kensington, involved 4 years' in house clinical practice, extensive study and ongoing personal therapy. In 2008 I completed and qualified as a psychodynamic psychotherapist, a qualification for twice weekly work.
Private work is in a quiet, comfortable consulting room, 5 minutes walk from Gloucester Road tube station.
I originally trained as a school teacher (15 years) and gradually moved into field of special needs education. It was this experience which influenced an interest in complex family dynamics, troubled relationships, loss and trauma.
A number of my referrals come from people who have looked on the above website and called me directly, some come from local GPs and colleagues as well as enquiries via BACP, FPC and BSCPC websites. Please look at the website, www.kensingtonandchelseacounselling.co.uk to find out about the initial consultation.

I currently work as a visiting therapist at Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships and am also part of an ongoing working group specialising in a Mentalization Based Approach to Couple Therapy.
