I am a qualified Counselling Psychologist, Play Therapist and Filial Therapist, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). I'm registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and am a member of the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS). I offer clinical and academic supervision to students on courses relating to psychology or therapy/counselling. I specialise in supporting trainee counselling psychologists.
I have over ten years' clinical experience, working with children, young people and adults in the NHS, educational, charitable and private sectors, including three years' experience in specialised NHS bereavement services. I currently run an established in-person and remote private practice in Central London.
I practise pluralistically and am trained in multiple therapeutic modalities, including person-centred, existential-phenomenological, second-wave and third-wave CBT, and psychodynamic. As a clinical supervisor, I aim to tailor my approach to meet supervisees' needs and preferences, and encourage reflexivity in relation to supervisees' practice and the supervisory relationship and process.
I have degrees in Counselling Psychology (DPsych, Regent’s University London), Play Therapy (MA, Distinction, The University of Roehampton), Psychology (BSc Hons, First Class, The Open University), and Classics (BA Hons, 2:1, The University of Oxford). I have further qualifications in Filial Therapy (The Family Enhancement & Play Therapy Center), CBT Skills (WPF Therapy), Coordinating Supervisor Skills (BPS), and Supervision Skills (BPS).
I have worked as a Lecturer and Placement Coordinator on the DPsych Counselling Psychology course at Regent’s University London and acted as a viva examiner for doctorates in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at Regent’s University London, London Metropolitan University, and The Metanoia Institute. I am currently an external examiner for courses at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and a peer reviewer for the journals Counselling Psychology Quarterly and Counselling Psychology Review. I collaborate with lecturers in Science Education at King’s College London to conduct research and training on teachers’ and trainee teachers’ wellbeing. I have published sole author, first author and jointly authored articles and chapters in peer-reviewed journals and edited volumes.
I offer a range of academic support services, including proofreading and copy-editing, providing in-text and summary comments on assignments and other written work, and discussion of the content and format of assignments and other forms of assessment.
My fees are £80 per session (50 minutes), and £1/minute for preparatory reading and feedback on written work.
