I trained as an individual psychodynamic psychotherapist in 2003 (WPF) After further specialist couple training I qualified as a couple psychotherapist (Tavistock Relationships) in 2012. I now work as a visiting couple therapist at Tavistock Relationships 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 specialised 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.
