It is most likely, you are currently experiencing something, which has brought you to seek support. No matter what is troubling you, psychotherapy can be a place to meet your own (often hidden) resources.
Working together through the process of therapy is useful in receiving mirroring, reflective questions to open one’s awareness to alternative perspectives, as well as a contained space to explore your internal landscape of thoughts, feelings and intuition. Within a safe, non-judgemental environment, you may feel more able to meet any unease you are experiencing, as a means to foster change you wish to see.
I aim to meet and see you, as and where you are, in a relationship based on equality, unconditional positive regard, compassion and empowerment. I invite inquiry into body-based experiences, to foster presence, inner guidance, emotional regulation, trauma resolution, interpersonal skills, embodiment, empathy and greater clarity in mind perception.
While most often people participate in their sessions through verbal dialogue, the possibility of working with breath, visualisation, meditation, dreams, movement, sound, drawing, and/or sand are useful tools to explore, express and integrate the unconscious.
Psychotherapy is often a long-term commitment of several years, however sometimes the work feels complete over a few months. Some people choose to focus on a specific matter over the course of a few weeks. The length of our work is determined at the beginning of therapy, upon having gone through an assessment to glean what our work together will entail and to decide whether we are suitable working together.
Please don’t hesitate to make contact with me via email, and we can arrange a brief phone consultation to answer any further questions you may have about the therapeutic process.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a diploma and research MA in transpersonal integrative psychotherapy, through The Centre of Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, London.
Alongside my private practice, I work at Priory Woking, with their mental health programme. Before establishing my private practice, I worked as a bereavement counsellor for Marie Curie, a counsellor at St. Ann’s Hospital, Phoenix Unit (a service specialising in eating disorders), and as a psychotherapist for Fresh Start Low Cost Counselling and Psychotherapy Services.
My continued professional development has led me to incorporate further skills in working with trauma, dreamwork and embodied awareness practices (specifically “Authentic Movement” and “Focusing”), as a means to bridge body, mind and spirit.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
