I am an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I trained at The Minster Centre in London, the UK's pioneering training institution for contemporary integrative psychotherapy and counselling. My psychotherapy qualification (MA) was awarded by Middlesex University. I offer individual therapy for young people and adults. I abide by the Ethical Framework of the BACP and the UKCP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice.
I offer primarily long term psychotherapy and also short term counselling in my private practice. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, childhood sexual abuse, issues of diversity and difference, relationship difficulties, self-harm, disordered eating, women's issues including pelvic health, children of alcoholic parents, addiction, boarding school trauma, and issues of sexuality and identity.
In addition to Private Practice, I have worked in NHS Secondary Care, treating patients with more complex needs through long-term psychotherapy, and in University and Community Counselling Services, providing short-term counselling.
I believe that every person contains within them the potential for their own growth and healing, for moving from self-criticism to self-compassion, and for creating the change they want to experience. My experience shows that therapy can make this possibility real.
