About me: I am a registered psychotherapist and a registered dietitian and i can work in either capacity or else both in combination. I abide by the ethical and professional codes of conduct of the United Kingdom council of psychotherapy (UKCP) and the health professions council (HPC) respectively.
As an Integrative psychotherapist: I draw upon a blend of theories and I help individuals explore and integrate different aspects of themselves.
As a dietitian: I use scientific, up-to-date research on food, health and disease which I translate into evidence-based practical guidance, tailored to the individual and their lifestyle.
Location: I see clients in Kennington, OX1, South Oxford.
Training, qualifications & experience
In dietetics, I have experience most fields including for example, diets for diabetes, heart disease, obesity and over-weight, eating disorders, and other eating distress. I am currently working part time as a mental health dietitian in Oxford health NHS trust. I have worked as a visiting lecturer at Kings College, University of London for 10 years where I taught undergraduate and post-graduate dietitians in communication skills. I qualified as a psychotherapist in November 2009 with over 600 hours of client hours accumulated in the voluntary sector and in an NHS setting. I have been running my own private practice since 2009. .
