About me

Hello,

It's sometimes difficult making the first step to find support or even knowing how to! and we seem to have to make these choices and decisions when one is already finding life difficult…

As an individual, and as a psychologist, my areas of interest include life span development all types of families; one's experiences of attachment and loss, and intergenerational patterns of relating and relationship issues this may cause.
I have always had an interest in 'workings of the mind' and a belief in one's 'resilience', ability to change, and our ability to reach for what we want if we believe in ourselves.
I am interested in social stigmas and the social construction of our lives, including culture, religion, and gender roles in society.
I work relationally with an awareness of myself, and my own being when with clients and believe in mindfulness and being in the moment.

In addition to this I am a bereavement and addictions counsellor plus have previously worked in a GP surgery, a staff counselling service, as a harassment adviser, in a private sexual health clinic offering TOPs and HIV testing, plus I have the experience of working with individuals who are depressed, anxious, have a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, PTSD or OCD to name a few, not that I work with a diagnosis..I work with a person!

I am in private practice and work with individuals and groups in Clapham Junction plus, if necessary I can work from home, do home visits and also offer therapy via telephone and Skype.

Theoretically I work according to what the client brings to therapy, I am experienced in, and use cognitive behavioural therapy, person centred counselling, psychodynamic or sometimes an eclectic or integrative mix of all.

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a Registered Midwife and Nurse [NMC]. I am a qualified Massage Therapist and Aromatherapist.

As a Midwife I have experience in all aspects of the care of women and their families and have experience of home births [one on a boat!] and hospital births. I have management and teaching experience and I have an avid interest in facilitating group work for prospective parents both in a supportive capacity and for help with anxiety and depression. I have also taught individuals about what is entailed in becoming a doula on weekend courses.

I have benefited so much from personal therapy myself and value the importance, and support gained, from regular supervision.

Specialities: Bereavement counselling, substance misuse, motivational interviewing and life coaching, attachment disorders, depression/anxiety, staff counselling & harassment work. I also work with prospective parents as to what it means to be a parent, the life changes involved, antenatal classes and postnatal visits, plus I have experience in managing a perinatal mental health service.
i have attended training as an Expert Witness for the courts.
i am a volunteer for Medical Justice and visit detention centres/write reports on individuals detained by the home office.
