I am an experienced UKCP registered psychotherapist. I practise privately in Harley Street, London W1.
I practise integrative psychotherapy, which means that I bring together essential aspects of psychodynamic, existential and humanistic approaches into a flexible way of working. My approach is to give the person the opportunity to solve, and grow beyond, presenting problems.
Training, qualifications & experience
Dipl. Psych. (Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, London, UK)
I trained in business management in Europe's most prestigious business schools and graduated in 1992, and then worked in the IT and New Media industries for eight years before choosing to train as a psychotherapist. I graduated in 2006 after five years of studies.
I have worked as a counsellor in counselling clinics between 2003 and 2006 and started my private practice as a psychotherapist in 2007. I have also acquired valuable experience of mental health work in the third sector, where I managed a mental health service for a leading London-based social care provider. I was the supervisor and service lead for the counselling clinic at an NHS GP practice between 2013 and 2018.
I am also a qualified business coach, with the accreditation of Associate Certified Coach from the International Coach Federation.
