About me

I am a BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist. My training involved a variety of therapeutic approaches including those from cognitive, dynamic, systemic and humanistic models. I have worked across all levels of Mental Health, from Primary Care to specialist areas such as, HIV Psychology, Psychosis and Complex Mental Health as well as Forensic Services.

My own background is diverse but is also holistic in nature. My first degree is in medicine but, I have always tried to understand alternative perspectives outside a medical paradigm. I studied Craniosacral therapy, Reiki and meditation. Whilst on a quest for further self-development, I have discovered that Psychology could provide a much needed interface between physical and mental health.

‎My own professional philosophy lies within the exploration of meanings, existential analysis and phenomenology. It also recognises role of trauma and a need for therapeutic adjustment in this light. The skill is in achieving an accurate empathic attunement between us which guides the whole therapy and therapeutic relationship.

I value the importance of how mental, physical and social health can become a life changing experience which could elicit drastic shifts in a person’s perspective about themselves and the world around them.

I have taken part and presented at various conferences at national and international levels on the topic of communication of trauma and distress in Mental Health.
