Faced with a bewildering choice of therapists it can be hard to know where to start. Usually it’s helpful to have an initial chat with a few therapists to get a sense of how they work and how happy you feel talking to them. Therapy can be a transformative experience and finding someone you feel comfortable with is a key part of that journey.
I work privately from my joint practice The Thought House Partnership based near Oxford Circus. I offer both short and long term therapy. Prior to setting up my private practice I have worked in a GP practice and a University counselling service.
Being an integrative counsellor means I am trained in a number of therapeutic approaches which I draw upon to find the most appropriate way to work with you.
We can start by having a conversation on the phone, or a one-off initial meeting to answer any questions you may have and give you a sense of what I may be able to offer you.
There is a growing awareness of the need to support our mental wellbeing. You may be experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, addiction, depression, low self-esteem or have a sense that some part of your life just isn’t quite working for you and have a desire to understand why.
Squashing down our uncomfortable feelings and fears usually only provides temporary relief and while confronting your true feelings is not always an easy process, embarking on therapy can be a transformative experience.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), abiding by their code of ethics in practice.
My intergrative approach incorporates psychodynamic, humanistic, body psychotherapy, attachment theory and contemporary relational psychotherapy models. I have experience in treating a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, identity issues, self harm and eating issues.
Additional training in: trauma, death and bereavement, childhood sexual abuse and self harm and suicide (The Minster Centre, 2014-2016).
I am particularly interested in seeing emotional and psychological problems in the context of the body and mind as a whole system and I am currently undertaking a piece of research exploring different impacts of yoga from a psychotherapeutic perspective.
Therapeutic theory is ever developing and I am committed to increasing my knowledge and absorbing new ways of working by keeping up to date with the latest research.
