I am an Integrative psychotherapist with a practice in Bath. I seek to create a space in which you can explore the issues that are going on for you in your life. Sometimes we may address a single issue head on and at other times it is about attending to the underlying themes that you see playing out in your life. It is an opportunity for a meaningful process of personal work; sometimes for a few sessions and sometimes requiring further time. Often we can get a clearer sense of the time frame during the first session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at Regents College in London where I attained a Masters degree in psychotherapy and counselling and then went on to get an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy.
Since my formative training I have also completed trainings in CBT, EMDR and Mindfulness.
I have worked in a variety of settings: at Guy's NHS hospital working with anxiety and personality disorders. At a branch of Turning Point working with substance abuse clients. In a residential treatment Centre for addiction, eating disorders and mood disorders. I have also worked in a university setting. I currently deliver mindfulness trainings, work with a clinical group and work in private practice.
