About me

I am a Psychotherapist UKCP registered, a Psychodynamic Counsellor and a Clinical Supervisor.

Worked for Surrey and Borders NHS Trust 17 years as a Principle Adult Psychotherapist offering individual and group therapy as well as supervision to staff and students.  Also participate in the MBT (Mentalisation Based Treatment) programme offered to individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.

My experience is extensive in working with people who suffer from a variety of mental health problems. Being also employed by Social Services I developed an interest in Adoption, acquiring 9 years of experience working with children and adults involved in adoption and affected by adoption issues.

 The therapy I offer provides confidential and supportive space for the clients to discuss, reflect and explore their difficulties.  This  to become emotionally stronger and to develop helpful ways to manage their difficulties and trauma they have experienced.   

I  use the psychodynamic model to to understand the individual's emotional difficulties and apply therapy interventions which best meet the needs of the individuals.  I use the Integrative approach and MBT approach .

In my Private Practice I see individuals who feel: Stressed, anxious, depressed and unable to cope with pressures of everyday life. People who experience difficulties in making and maintaining personal and intimate relationships.  People who are unable to manage at work or at home, who were subjected to physical, sexual and emotional abuse or who were neglected during childhood. People who suffer from low self esteem, eating disorder, personality difficulties, relationship breakdown, who have experienced loss and bereavement. I also see individuals who suffer from physical symptoms which can be understood as an expression of their emotional pain.

In my private practice I offer:

  • Long and short term Individual Therapy to Young People over 16 and Adults
  • Supportive and Explorative Therapy / Counselling 

I also provide Supervision and Consultation to:

  • Trainees in Counselling and Psychotherapy

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Adoption is an area of work I am very interested and where I have developed expertise as I worked in an Adoption Team for 9 years as a Social Worker and also as a Therapist.

Attachment issues are core difficulties to individuals affected by adoption. Also a number of children raised by their biological parents for a number of reasons have not had the opportunities to develop healthy and secure attachments which impacts heavily in their life as they grow up and the way they experience life and relate to others. My extensive training and clinical experience have equipped me well to effectively work with such individuals.

I have acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience through training and especially my work in the NHS in offering therapy to individuals who have difficulties with relationships and have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder or EUPD.

I have attended various trainings to enable me to work with individuals diagnosed with Dissociative Disorders, who have experienced significant trauma and dissociate.
