About me

welcome. If you are considering entering into psychotherapy, you probably have lots of questions. Through this web profile, I hope to answer many of these questions.

i am a qualified and experienced Counselling Psychologist who has treated adults, couples and teenagers with a wide range of emotional and psychological issues. You may be feeling anxious, depressed, stressed, isolated, or misunderstood. Perhaps, your self-esteem is low or you have a specific mental health issue. Whatever life challenges you are facing, I would be glad to discuss how I could help you.

My training as a Counselling Psychologist, together with many years experience in the NHS, Occupational Health and the voluntary sector, enables me to offer psychotherapy in my private practice that can be tailored to your individual needs. The starting point of therapy is establishing a relationship of collaboration and trust, where you will feel safe to explore your thoughts and feelings. Each person is different, so at our first meeting I will listen to your counselling needs and this will inform how I might work with you. This can change over time as your needs change and you progress. I am experienced in working in many models of psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), person-centred, psychodynamic and mindfulness. Each model offers something different to empower you to greater self awareness, understanding, and the tools to face life's challenges both now and in the future.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a Counselling Psychologist my qualifications include a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (D.Psych). I have Chartered Status and Accreditation with the British Psychological Society (BPS)(CPschol) and am registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC).  In addition, I have a B.A. (Hons) in Psychology, Philosophy and Physiology from Oxford University.  Other training includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Mood and Anxiety Disorders (IAPT), Mindfulness and Supervision of Health Care Professionals (BPS).

I apply an integrative approach to my work, which can include a combination of different approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Existential and Mindfulness.

Alongside my studies and beyond, I have continuously worked in clinical practice.  This has involved specialist organisations, such as The Aurora Health Foundation (survivors of childhood abuse) and more general clinical work as a counsellor in the Occupational Health Department at Kingston Hospital and Richmond Borough Mind.

Accessibility

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.
