I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. My approach is flexible so that it can be adapted to your needs. I work relationally, which means that, through the therapeutic relationship, you are encouraged to explore and understand how early experiences and past relationships impact on your present difficulties.
In order to access emotional pain and past traumatic experiences trapped in the body I sometimes use a more mindful approach focused on the body in addition to traditional talking therapies. Of special interest to me is how unresolved and traumatic experiences can be healed and transformed by a greater integration of the mind and body.
In addition to my private practice, I am also a counsellor in the voluntary sector and provide long-term counselling for various mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder.
Training, qualifications and experience
I trained at Regents University in London and hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My training also includes Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which is a body-centred approach focusing on trauma.
I am registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist (MBACP).
Code of ethics
