About me

In 2008 I qualified as an Existential and Person Centred Psychotherapist from the University of West London. Prior to that I attended a one year course with the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling. Additionally, I hold a BSc in Psychology and an MA in Psychosocial Studies. I have over 15 years working with teenagers and young adults and I work psychotherapeutically with young people and adults. I currently work as a psychotherapist in a charity supporting homeless people and in private practice.

My approach is Existential and Phenomenological. Existential analysis is concerned with the human condition and how we choose to approach the problems, dilemmas and experiences that we encounter and how to become aware and change the patterns in our living and thinking that may have become obstructive. Existential psychotherapy is a relational approach which means that it examines thoroughly our relationship patterns with ourselves (our bodies, lived experiences), others and the world around us.

I offer short term and long term interventions and I have experience working with a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, addiction, eating disorders, identity problems, difficulties with relationships, bereavement, attachment issues and crisis intervention.  

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I adhere to their Code of Ethics and Conduct and regularly attend Professional Development courses to refine and develop my skills as well as attending regular clinical supervision

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
