About me

I am a BACP registered/accredited counsellor & psychotherapist, trained in the person-centred approach at University of Warwick. Practising mainly in the field of abuse and addictions, I work with complex trauma. As a Women's Aid domestic abuse prevention advocate, I offer expert, specialist, feminist therapy for women surviving oppression and abuse - particularly coercive control.

I practise in London and Nottingham working face-to-face in therapy rooms: www.counsellingeuston.co.uk and www.riversidenaturalhealthcentre.co.uk I also offer walk and talk therapy in both locations, intensive therapy over weekends in rural and coastal locations, and counselling by Skype.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA (Hons) Person-Centred Counselling & Psychotherapy from University of Warwick
  • MSc Psychology from Coventry University
  • PhD Psychology (social psych) from Coventry University (pending as I've passed my viva but not graduating until April)
  • Counselling Supervision Diploma from Lindum College

I have experience of counselling in:the NHS (psychological services at University Hospital, Coventry), Face2Face Counselling Service (children and young people), Safeline, Warwick (survivors of child sexual abuse), Coventry Haven (specialist women's domestic abuse service), RAPt (Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners' Trust) and Bayberry (addiction treatment centre).

Further information

I am also a counselling tutor on the BA (Hons) Humanistic Counselling Practice at University of Nottingham, a researcher and consultant. My doctoral research investigated how to improve professionals' responses to mothers separated from their children in a context of domestic violence and abuse and I offer consultancy to mothers in such situations, e.g. mothers fighting for custody when coercive controllers use the family courts as a platform to continue abuse, control and intimidate.
