About me

I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you can share and explore present and past experiences, express thoughts and feelings and gain personal awareness, enjoying a better quality of life, robust mental health, improved well-being and more genuine relationships.

My experience and interests include current trauma and PTSD, depression, manic depression/bipolar disorder, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, anger management, personality disorder(s), obesity and phobias, abuse, Survivors, stress, work related issues, bullying, gender and sexuality, addictions including substance misuse, alcohol, food, compulsive lying, sex and porn, gambling and gaming, in addition to relationship issues - including either males or females, positioned as "perpetrator" or "victim" caught up within the cycle of emotional abuse.

Training, qualifications & experience

My clinical practice is underpinned by humanistic, person-centred and existential approaches, integrating Mindfulness, Transactional Analysis, Schema Therapy, CBT (recommended under the NICE Guidelines), Schema Therapy, as well as Psychodynamic and Gestalt. Such practice reflects my belief that each of us is unique with the potential for growth and development and can move forward in our own way.

I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist and Member of the British Psychological Society ("BPS"). I hold the position of Course Lead, tutoring and lecturing on a BACP Stage 4 Accredited Counselling Diploma.

Fellow practitioners, if you wish to train with me, CPD workshops are available in a range of interventions.

Previous appointments include clinical lead, team leader, group facilitator, domestic violence lead, trainer, developer and lead on transtheoretical and structured day care programmes. I have also set up specific Recovery Services within a large London Borough. My training was in long-term psychotherapy (104 weeks) with individuals labelled under the "personality disorder" "bipolar" umbrella at an outpatient NHS Department of Psychotherapy & Art Psychotherapy.
