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: anxiety, paranoid anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, trauma, PTSD, OCD, phobias, anger management, personality disorders, eating disorders including obesity, physical and sexual abuse, Survivors, gender and sexuality, addiction(s) including substance misuse, alcohol, food, compulsive lying, affairs and betrayals, sex and porn, internet, 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. Work-related stress, redundancy, bullying.

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), 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 practice as a BACP Accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist. I am also a Member of the British Psychological Society ("BPS"). I hold the position of Course Lead for a Stage 4 BACP Accredited Counselling Diploma. Workshops and presentations delivered at BPS Conferences and school INSET staff training days include Assertiveness, Mindfulness, Health & Well-being and Disordered Eating. 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. I initially trained at an outpatient NHS Department of Psychotherapy & Art Psychotherapy in long-term psychotherapy (up to 104 weeks) with individuals labelled under the "personality disorder" "bipolar" umbrella. Other experience includes working in time limited brief therapy and group therapy for jointly commissioned third sector charity/NHS Services in addition to delivering interventions within the criminal justice system.
