I am an Integrative Psychotherapist who uses an integrative approach to help clients discover and understand their underlying issues. She uses CBT when appropriate. She is an active and empathetic listener with extensive experience in a wide range of issues.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I use different combinations of therapeutic tools and approaches to suit individual needs.
‘Integrative psychotherapy’ is a more progressive form of therapy than traditional singular forms of psychotherapy, drawing elements from different schools of thought to make it a more flexible and inclusive form of treatment that’s suitable for a wide range of emotional health issues.
I have previously worked in HR in Kenya with individuals from a less fortunate background which enables her to empathise and fully comprehend people’s experiences – a vital part of psychotherapy.
As a psychotherapist working with addiction, I have engaged with clients to help grow their self-confidence and awareness by pin-pointing the root cause of their addiction. She works in the NHS in long and short-term weekly therapy with adults suffering from a variety of problems E.g. anxiety, depression, bereavement). Over the course of sessions, significant change takes place whereby the functionality of day-to-day tasks become more attainable and the belief and will to progress is strengthened

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.
