About me

My experience as an Integrative Psychotherapist, Psychologist and Counsellor has strengthened my confidence in the effectiveness of the 'talking cure' . There are several reasons for seeking therapy; in every instance it is important to feel understood by someone who you find capable and trustworthy.  How well this unique combination works depends on the therapist's skills, training, experience and perhaps most of all, the mix of your qualities and theirs.

I am a registered member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy), a chartered member of the BPS (British Psychological Society) and an EMDR UK accredited practitioner. I offer short and longer term therapy for individuals or couples.  Using an integrative approach, I draw on my understanding of the major schools of therapy to work with you according to your personality and your specific reasons for seeking support.  This enables me to offer a holistic therapy that takes into account the whole, unique individual - respecting all aspects of your being: your style of thinking, emotional experiences and typical ways of relating to others.

My aim is to provide a space where you can feel supported and understood, deepening your awareness of your unique patterns of feeling, thinking and behaviour. This process of gaining insight and greater self-compassion offers the potential for you to make informed choices and experience your personal and professional life, as well as your relationships, as more fulfilling.

I am bound by the ethical frameworks of the UK Council for Psychotherapy, for good practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.  As a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society I abide by the code of ethics of the BPS.

Training, qualifications & experience

DCPSYCH - Doctorate in Integrative Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy by Professional Studies
BSc (First Class Hons) Psychology and Counselling.
Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy.
Diploma, Practitioner Skills for Eating Disorders.
EMDR Practitioner, accredited by EMDR UK.

In addition to my private practice, I also work within the NHS. I have worked with clients in a variety of settings including NHS primary care, Kings College Hospital, The Awareness Centre, Mind and the Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service.

I have experience of working with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, negative thoughts, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, addictions, personality issues and abuse.  An area in which I have substantial training and experience is the treatment of eating disorders and I also work with carers of people with eating disorders.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a very effective therapy for processing the effects of trauma. It is increasingly used to help people dealing with other matters such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and addictive behaviour including eating disorders.

Further information

Many of the difficulties that people experience can be understood as arising from strategies or patterns that helped them manage with challenging situations in the past.  These patterns were once a solution of sorts, but in time have become increasingly less effective and can stand in the way of present happiness and fulfillment.  I believe in the potential for positive change and growth through greater awareness of these patterns and the development of more effective strategies for life.  These principles guide me in my work with individuals from a variety of cultures and backgrounds, as well as with couples.
