About me

Are you facing issues related to anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma or major life changes?

​There are times when we need some help when confronted with life’s challenges.
I am committed to supporting you in your journey towards healing and self-discovery.

Core Process Psychotherapy is a mindful and contemplative approach to psychotherapy developed at the Karuna Institute. The approach combines Western modalities and Buddhist principles to deepen awareness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a four-year training in Mindfulness Based Core Process Psychotherapy at the Karuna Institute in Devon and have obtained a Master’s degree from the Middlesex University in London.

I am accredited with UKCP and a registered member of BACP and adhere to their code of ethics and practice.

In November 2020 I also trained in EMDR (acronym for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) a method which is highly effective in treating individuals who have experienced psychological difficulties arising from traumatic experiences, such as assault, road traffic accidents, sexual abuse etc. but is also increasingly used to treat symptoms which are not necessarily trauma-related, such as panic disorder, phobias, performance anxiety,  etc.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

UKCP

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.

Further information

My interest is to develop awareness of the ‘here and now’, and to discover what it tells us about how we are in relationship to others, the world and ourselves. I consider therapy as a form of partnership between the client and myself, and by enquiring together into the present moment we are able to recognise old patterns we enact in the present.

Another focus I take in my work is exploring the space where mind and body meet. I believe they are not separate. The body knows. When we connect with and give attention to the body, we learn more about our emotional landscape. By listening to the body, we create pathways to our current and past experiences.

I work holistically. This means I engage with the spiritual dimension if this is part of your perspective. There is scope within the sessions for exploring what meaning you make of your life and the questions which arise from this.
