About me

I work with adults and young people on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. I work in a private practice in Dalston.

As an integrative counsellor I am trained in different counselling models, including Psychodynamic, Person-centred, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). As a result, I have developed my own way of working which allows me to work with people holistically and adapt to their individual needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling (Adv Dip)

Shorter training courses in:

  • Working with Dissociative Disorders (European Society of Trauma and Dissociation-UK)
  • Attachment and Trauma
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
  • Working with Young People
  • Neuropsychology
  • Psychiatry, Psychopathology and Psychodynamics

As well as my private practice, I have counselling experience in a GP surgery, where I have worked with a wide range of people with varied needs, and in a centre for carers.

I also have experience of working with people in the voluntary sector for many years. This has equipped me to support survivors of abuse and complex trauma, people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health difficulties and other health challenges. I have also worked with lesbian and bisexual clients, and with people from a wide range of faiths and cultures.
