I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and coach.
My training has covered a variety of therapeutic approaches from reflective psychodynamic practice right through to modern CBT techniques.
An integrative approach means I draw on different therapeutic theories and methods to best suit the client and their circumstances.
Each client brings something different into the room and with the integrative approach, I am able to provide personalised and well-rounded support.
My ultimate goal is to provide clients with a comfortable, non-judgemental, therapeutic space to do our work.
I focus on making progress with clients in a manageable but targeted way.
Empathetic listening is at the core of my practice to assist you with the issues you are facing.
I started my career at the globally recognised University College London, where I worked for two decades in their hospital trauma centre, in central London, in the UK.
Working directly with NHS patients during this time, I also supported local Third Sector mental charities: Samaritans, The Maytree House, HQ Therapy, The LightHouse, as well as Hackney, Islington and Camden CAMHS (Child + Adult Mental Health Services).
Now I work privately, engaging with client patients either face-to-face or online over the internet.
I still run workshops and speciality sessions from time to time away from home, notably overseas if necessary.
My professional undertakings include various US states, and several provinces of Canada, Portugal, Germany, Holland, Italy, Hungary, Greece, Denmark, and Finland; I practised in Paris and Montreal.
Having read my degree at Strathclyde University, I continued my tertiary education at UCL, UEL, Tavistock + Portman Trust and the WPF.
