About me

I am an integrative therapist meaning that I use various accounts of human personality to find the best approach in my work but also that I see one’s mental integration as a therapeutic goal. When you sit in front of me, I will see YOU; a unique person with a deeply sited complex of feelings, thoughts and set of behaviours acquired over the years since you were born. My intention is to help you consider afresh that complex; I will encourage you to free your inner space from the clutter, revisit some outdated beliefs and get in touch with some old feelings that might be ‘to blame’ for the present day pains and aches. While you are searching for the truth about you, I will be your sounding board and someone who affirms the good stuff and challenges you when you sound like someone else, not YOU.

Say, lately you have been feeling excessively anxious or very low and depressed; or you have spent several sleepless nights... Well, I recon, something is knocking on your ‘mental’ door asking to be let in; something is urging you to give up the existence you have limited yourself to and start living the life you really deserve? In other words, the complaint you have is just a symptom of ...life, really.

Or another example, say lately you have been using alcohol or drugs to sooth your pain, to fill the emptiness that make you go bonkers. That, in turn, has made you feel guilty and useless.  The more you drink the worst you feel and it is getting totally out of control! I would try to help you be honest with yourself clearing out of the way all the denial, I will help you make sense of the reasons why you do what you do and enable you to find your way out of this self-defeating cycle.

Or let’s say you have been abandoned by your partner, whether in separation or in death, and it is unbearably painful. I will give you the space you need to consider not only the relationship you have lost but what might be fuelling the pain you are experiencing.

Whatever your predicament, together we might be able to re-channel your energies to allow you to grow and expand into the person you are meant to be: deeper, larger, freer using your powers to create.

Training, qualifications & experience

MY QUALIFICATIONS

I am a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist which means that the UK largest professional body for counselling and psychotherapy has confirmed that I meet the standards for a competent, ethical and independent practitioner.

I started my career as a linguist and university lecturer.

My middle age ‘crisis’ made me look into the things in life I feel passionate about and I realised that counselling and psychotherapy was what I wanted to pursue as a career! I then studied...a long time. I completed:

  • Bachelor Degree in Psychology
  • Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, a BACP accredited course
  • Certificate in the Use of Drama and Movement in Therapy
  • Certificate in Working with Addictions and Eating Disorders

In addition to that I regularly attend continuing professional development seminars such as:

  • Parent-Infant Attachment and the Impact on Adult Relationships
  • Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to Address Insomnia across Mental Health Problems
  • Effective Group Work
  • Working with Clients Presenting with Addictive Behaviour
  • Fundamentals of Gestalt Theory
  • The Development of Psychoanalysis in the Tavistock and Portman Clinic
  • Working with Survivors of Sexual Child Abuse
  • Brief Counselling

ETHICAL CODE OF PRACTICE

I work under BACP code of practice.

MY EXPERIENCE

I have worked with clients from all walks of life, bringing to counselling most problems we people suffer from: loss, unresolved traumatic experiences, addictions, depression, relationship problems, grappling with physical and mental abuse - past or present. Most often, those are presented as 'not feeling good enough', 'not fitting in', 'not feeling belonging', 'not feeling loved and important by/to anyone'. I take great care to distinguish between symptoms and underlying causality and 'get to the bottom' of it. Our mental condition can be likened to a physical wound; if you don't treat it properly it will fester, get inflamed; making the rest of the body feeling in pain. Therapy, if done well, attends to the mental wound, cleans it and lets it heal.
