About me

Hello,

My name is El and I am an experienced integrative psychotherapist. I am a trained humanistic therapist as well as a Dance Movement Psychotherapist and therefore I predominantly draw from humanistic, psycho-analytic and art based frameworks. I have worked in a range of different settings such as the NHS, charitable organisations, education and the private sector. I have a small practices based in Kensington which I work from three days a week. My practice is both face to face and digital. I offer a standard rate but can be flexible within reason for low income clients / students. I offer an open and warm environment for all of my clients were we can build a trusting authentic relationship. Sometimes things can become overwhelming and I believe that working creatively can offer alternative perspective to things that start to weigh us down. If you would like to know more about how I work please do not hesitate to contact me.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA in Humanistic Therapy and predominantly worked with abuse survivors during and after my training. I have also worked across several schools with children as young as 5, working mainly with children and family with difficult backgrounds. As my career progressed I began working within the NHS in primary care as a 1-1 therapist treating patients with a range of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. Through this I gained a vast knowledge and understanding of working with clients seeking asylum within the UK. During and after my Dance Movement Psychotherapy training (MA) alongside trauma survivors I began working with the homeless community before progressing onto workshops, group works and 1-1 work within detox and rehabilitation addiction hubs. I currently work with young people alongside secondary care addiction work to compliment my private practice. I am a qualified integrative supervisor and work with individuals and groups. Finally, I often run / facilitate CPD events and workshops across London and Nottinghamshire.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
