I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist who has studied and trained in psychology since my late teens. My passions for science and philosophy have guided me to develop a deep understanding of the human condition (that life is an unpredictable challenge which brings worry and anxiety) and ensure evidence-based interventions, which combine into a deeply intuitive integrative approach. I have extensive experience working with people, couples and families, who have gone through a wide range of life challenges, changes and life cycles. I have worked extensively with individuals experiencing any range of challenges and difficulties, ranging from depression, anxiety, phobias, loss, addiction to complex trauma, sexual violence, body dysmorphia/gender dysphoria, eating disorders and issues around immigration, cultural adaptation and racial inequality. My single aim in therapy is to develop an honest and transparent relationship with my clients, so that they feel comfortable to explore their lives from a place of safety, openness and vulnerability. Three aspects I believe are essential for therapy to be successful.
I have 15 yearsâ€™ experience working in the NHS, charity and the private sectors. I am trained in a number of psychological therapies, including Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Cognitive-Analytic Therapy (CAT), Mentalisation Based Treatment (MBT), Jungian Analysis, Existential/Phenomenological Analysis, Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) and Family Systems Therapy (FST).
