As an integrative psychotherapist, my approach is determined by the individual and their needs. My work involves an exploration and understanding of your life and experience from birth to present, including unconscious processes and dreams. I seek to understand thought patterns, fears, obstacles and unhelpful perceptions that stand in the way of love and success. You are encouraged to talk about and understand your feelings, and to learn to distinguish between truth and fear. I work with relationship issues, generalised anxiety and depressive disorders as well as panic disorder.
Our first session is an assessment where we can discuss any questions or concerns you may have, as well as expectations and hopes.
I work with generalised anxiety disorder, PTSD, and I have helped numerous clients and patients work through anxiety and depression, addiction, bereavement, panic attacks, and more. Currently working in the NHS in complex care and having trained in an NHS hospital, I also work with more complex issues and personality disorder including BPD.
As a qualified practitioner in Alternative Dispute Resolution I am also trained to work as a mediator to help settle disputes out of court efficiently and peacefully.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA and PG Dip in Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent's University. I am a trained mindfulness practitioner, and I have previously volunteered at Cruse, Mind and Goodmayes Hospital in Redbridge working in complex care.
I have been working with people helping to understand themselves better for nearly 20 years. Currently I work in the NHS in complex care and personality disorders.
For many years I worked in media for various publications and websites as an Agony Aunt and daily columnist. I am also a published writer, and this work continues in response to demand.
