My qualification is a five-year Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from the Minster Centre in London (one of the most respected therapy training centres in the UK). I also hold an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling, and a BSc (hons) in Psychology (intercalated with medicine).
My training includes elements of humanistic therapy (a focus on experience in the here-and-now), psychodynamics (how the past unconsciously influences our present), attachment theory (how early relationships influence our current ways of relating), body psychotherapy (the physical basis of emotion), cognitive-behavioural therapy (changing thoughts and actions), mindfulness, and the neuroscience that underpins all of these.
I am a member of two professional associations, the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
As well as running my own psychotherapy practice, I have worked as a counsellor at Mind.
Experience with clients
As well as running my own therapy practice, I have worked as a counsellor at Mind. I have also worked in the Minster Centre’s therapy service.
I have worked with clients for lengths of time ranging from a couple of months to several years.
What kind of therapy do I offer?
I am an integrative therapist, which means I use a blend of therapeutic approaches tailored to your particular needs and preferences.
I draw from two main bodies of therapy: psychodynamic (how our early experience influences our present, and the interplay between our conscious and unconscious minds) and humanistic-existential (the potential for positive development in every person, in the context of the givens of human existence).
My training includes a strong element of modern knowledge on neuroscience, and on how our minds and bodies connect.
I work relationally, which means I will pay attention to the relationship between us, as it might shine a light on the general relationship patterns in your life.
