NO CURRENT AVAILABILITY - APOLOGIES
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist (CPsychol) who works from my private clinics in Richmond-Upon-Thames, Teddington and Twickenham. As a Counselling Psychologist I am trained to work with different therapeutic approaches. Mainly, my therapeutic approach is relational and informed by a range of attachment, psychodynamic and person-centred theory. I am most concerned with understanding, nurturing and developing a secure and strong therapeutic relationship with individuals I see. I believe that this provides a necessary foundation from which personal growth and change can begin to occur. Research consistently shows that the quality of the therapeutic relationship has a closer link to therapeutic movement than the specific type of counselling approach chosen.
I work with anybody who is experiencing mental distress. I work with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to: Abuse, Anger, Anxiety, Bereavement and Loss, Body Image, Childhood issues, Depression, Disconnection, Dissociation, Eating issues, Gambling, Identity, Interpersonal problems, Loss of Meaning, Low Self-esteem, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Phobias, Relationship difficulties, Self-harm, Sexuality, Sexual issues, Sleep issues, Stress, Substance misuse, Suicidal ideation, Trauma, Work Stress. Your concern may not fall within any of these areas. You can bring anything that is worrying you or causing you distress, confusion, pain or difficulty. Sometimes, individuals are not sure why they are coming to see me. They just feel things are not okay. They may bring a feeling they would like to work with such as feeling stuck, empty, numb or dead in some way. They may have a question about life that is spiritual or existential in nature. Or they may like to engage in general explorative work. There is no right or wrong topic to bring and I can help you to explore further. Therapy can help to create shifts, movement and new energy that did not previously feel present or possible.
I receive the vast majority of referrals through recommendation and word of mouth.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BSc Psychology degree (BSC Hons) and a Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (CPsychol). I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as well as being accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), where I hold full membership with their Division of Counselling Psychology. As part of my training, I undertook over six years of rigorous training in a wide range of psychological theory, professional research and clinical practice in order to become an effective and competent Practitioner. I practice under the HCPC’s code of conduct and the British Psychological Society's code of conduct and ethics. I am listed in the BPS Directory of Chartered Members and on the HCPC Register of Practitioner Psychologists. Perhaps it is as helpful and important for you to know that people who work with me describe me as being genuinely caring and warm, easy to talk to, calming and trustworthy.
For over six years, I have provided short, medium and long-term individual psychological therapy to adults in a variety of settings. The majority of my work has been for the National Health Service (NHS) in Trusts in and around London. This has included working in Primary Care Services and General Practice Surgeries. I have also worked within Secondary Care Services with individuals who have more complex needs and histories of trauma. Examples of NHS Trusts I have worked for include South London and Maudsley NHS Trust, Southwark NHS Trust, South West London and St George's NHS Trust and Kent and Medway NHS Trust. I also have experience of working for Essex probation service, in addition to a number of charitable organisations including Only Connect, Mind, Samaritans, beat, Place2be and Brighton Oasis Project. I continue to work within the NHS alongside my private practice.
