I have been a practicing psychotherapist and counsellor for 18 years in a wide range of therapeutic settings.
I am accredited with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)
Before setting up a private practice, I gained experience working in counselling clinics, psychiatric hospitals and drug & alcohol services in London and Sussex.
I hold a post-graduate diploma in Integrative / Transpersonal Psychotherapy .
I am also a trained EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) Psychotherapist: This is the trauma treatment recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).
The models I draw on are
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Therapy
Landmark Forum and Landmark Forum Advanced Course
By drawing on different approaches, I can tailor the therapy in a way that uniquely suits you.
As a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I abide by their ethical framework. I am fully insured and have regular supervision to ensure my work is of the highest standard.
Prior to my therapeutic work I worked in television and for an international children’s charity.
