About me

I view psychotherapy as mainly an endeavour to “know thyself”. I take the position that through the acquisition of self-knowledge, the possibility of change can gradually manifest as a dynamic possibility.

My style of working is flexible, relational and dialogical. I will help you to gradually explore what the origins of your current difficulties are and create the meaning that is significant to you. You will be provided with a confidential, supportive and empowering space to explore how you want to project yourself into the future, by also carefully acknowledging the limitations along the way.

In terms of my theoretical approach, I'm an existentially trained psychotherapist/counselling psychologist who also values and employs contemporary psychoanalytic ideas in understanding human difficulties and dilemmas. I'm therefore interested in past and present experiences, but also your future potential.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and BPS (British Psychological Society) registered Counselling Psychologist and accredited Clinical Supervisor, and a UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and UPCA (Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association) accredited Existential Psychotherapist. I hold a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy, a BSc(Hons) in Psychology and an Advanced Diploma in Social Sciences.

Throughout my professional experiences thus far, I have held various clinical, organisational, research and leadership positions in the NHS, the Social Care Services, the Department for Education, the Higher Education, the Local Government and Charity Sectors. I have significant experience in working with families, children, adolescents and adults on both an individual and group basis.

I have been trained and have particular interests in play therapy, psychodrama, family work, and intersubjective approaches to severe distress. Aside from my clinical work, academically I am also acting as the Professional Practice Lead for the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at Regent's University London where I also hold a Senior Lecturer position. I also provide freelance academic consultation and research supervision.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
