I believe therapy works best as a collaborative endeavour, and it is widely recognised that it is the strength of the relationship that is key to therapeutic success.
My approach is grounded in working with you as an individual - a process that aims to clarify and illuminate issues central to you in a way that is non-judgmental and down to earth. What works for one person may not work for another and as such my approach is flexible and adapted according to your needs.
In addition to my work as a Psychotherapist, I have a background in International Affairs and Finance and have lived and worked throughout Africa, the Middle East, SE Asia and the United States.
I am actively involved in the performing arts, in particular dance and music, and welcome clients from creative and entrepreneurial professions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapist, with a PGDip in Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent’s University and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy, also from Regent’s University.
Currently I undertake clinical work at Kings College Hospital for The Havens Unit in Paddington, The Women & Girls Network and The Helen Bamber Foundation.
Within my private practice I have extensive experience working with HNWI's and their families, in addition to working with NGO’s, Front Line organisations and charities.
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.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have a particular interest in working with individuals who have experienced traumatic life events at an early age; sexual and domestic violence, military veterans, those serving with the Armed Forces, and Front Line Aid workers. My experience working internationally and cross-culturally has endowed me with sensitivity towards the unique experiences of those who have been subject to prolonged warfare, nationalist conflict, religious persecution and gender-based violence.
An initial session starts at £80 and will last approx. 1 hour.
I operate a sliding scale and the cost of individual therapy is £80 - £125 per session.
I do offer low-cost, concessionary rates on occasion and I would be happy to discuss this with you over the phone or at our initial session.
