About me

Modern life gives us more choice than ever before, but with those choices often comes stress and uncertainty. My aim is to work to provide the help and guidance you need to cope with life's pressures and to achieve lasting success and happiness.

I believe that the attainment through psychotherapy of increased self-knowledge can radically transform life for the better.

The way forward is multi-layered. It requires first of all an accurate audit of your current position, followed by empathic and focused work to establish the root of problems and achieve transformation. The goal is a work-life balance that allows enjoyment of life – and your abilities and relationships – to the full.

I work within established guidelines of psychotherapy, as laid down by my professional body, the British Association for Counselling and  Psychotherapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and have extensive experience in the business world as a board level communications executive and as the originator and developer of business ideas. My practice as a therapist is thus rooted in extensive 'real-world' experience and knowledge.

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in psychotherapy from Regent's University, London. I work primarily as a psychodynamic counsellor, but also draw on theory from existential and humanist approaches, as well as CBT. I am particularly interested in attachment science, a fast-developing field which explains human behaviour, needs and development in unprecedented ways. .

As part of my continuing professional development I regularly attend seminars by leading psychotherapy practitioners and academic theorists.  
 
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling Psychotherapists (BACP) and in the academic year 2014-15 completed training at Sussex University towards accreditation in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).

Further information

I also have extensive knowledge of the family court system and have specialist knowledge of the pressures of family breakdown.
