I am an experienced and fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering private therapy for adults. I have a Masters Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and a diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre, London. I am a registered member of BACP and I am accredited by the UKCP.
I have worked with a diverse range of clients presenting with issues that are varied and many of which are complex. I offer both long and short-term support including time-limited or focussed/solution-oriented counselling or open-ended more exploratory psychotherapy. We can discuss what you would like or need at an initial appointment.
My aim throughout my work is to support people to make positive changes in their lives through gaining greater awareness and self-acceptance allowing better informed and congruent choices and removing potential blocks to living more effectively.
My approach considers you as a whole person, paying attention to all aspects of your experience and how this may be impacting you which may include work/life balance, physical health or spiritual wellbeing. Through personal and professional experience I have witnessed how therapy acts as a powerful catalyst in promoting greater freedom and connection in our lives by improving emotional wellbeing, relationships and professional or personal potential.
My clinical experience involves providing psychological therapies in an NHS service as well as in a low cost therapy service. I have worked as a counsellor in a number of specialist services including with victims of domestic and sexual abuse and with people whose lives have been impacted by the criminal justice system. I specialise in working with trauma and transitional stages of life. I currently work for a sight loss counselling service and in private practice in London.
Previously I have worked in both creative and educational industries which affords me an understanding of these environments as well as self-employed or organisational issues.
