About Me

Background and Training

Having worked in education for many years, I decided to follow my passion and train as a psychotherapist and counsellor.

Building on a previous introductory counselling course taken in 2010, I began my counselling and psychotherapy training  at Metanoia Institute in West London in 2014, where I worked as a trainee therapist as well as undertaking extensive academic work and my own psychotherapy.

I have worked at two community counselling services in London which serve the general public and at a student counselling service at a university. I have also worked in the NHS in a psychiatric hospital.

In private practice I work with clients in both long-term psychotherapy and shorter-term counselling, depending on the client’s individual needs.

My specialist areas include:

Depression
Anxiety and panic attacks
Suicidal thoughts
Self esteem
Childhood abuse
Trauma and PTSD
Eating disorder
Identity issues
Relationship difficulties
Workplace issues
Bereavement

I also work as a Mental Health Mentor with students at a leading university and at an EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) as a counsellor supporting employees of numerous organisations.

Credentials

I hold a Clinical Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Metanoia Institute. I am working towards a further qualification, an MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy at Metanoia which I will complete in 2019.

I also hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy from the University of Kent and a Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling and Counselling Skills from Birkbeck College, University of London.

I  am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I abide by their ethical framework. You can view this framework at the following link: BACP Ethical Framework
