Who I am
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and have been trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (which tends to focus on problem focused and shorter term work), psychodynamic therapy (which tends to focus on longer-term work) and person centred therapy. Whatever the approach, it is important to have a good working therapeutic relationship.
How counselling can help
I will endeavour to hear, listen and understand you. In my view, therapy is about having a person outside your life, who is able to work alongside you, to allow you to change your perspective or the way you think about things, in the way that you want to.
I have experience of working with adults with depression, anxiety, and relationship problems. I have a special interest in working with people who are living with cancer, Tourette’s disease and neurological difficulties, such as multiple sclerosis and epilepsy. I also have experience of working with people with non epileptic seizures. In addition, I am particularly interested in working with people with dementia and with partners or family members of those with dementia.
What to expect in the first session
If you decide to contact me, we will arrange an initial meeting to talk about your reasons for seeking therapy and the approach that would be helpful for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and have completed a Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of East London. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. Before I trained as a counselling psychologist I trained and worked as a general nurse (RGN) and a registered mental nurse (RMN). I worked as an RMN at The Maudsley Hospital for 11 years.
My experience of working as a nurse has helped me as a counselling psychologist as it has given me experience of helping people who are experiencing both physical and mental distress and illness.
