Qualifications & Experience
I completed my training in Intergrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Regents University and am a Registered Member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) as well as a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); the leading professional bodies for psychotherapy in the UK.
I currently work as a psychotherapist within IAPT (NHS Primary Care) where I work with a range of patients referred to our service by GPs in Hounslow.
I also have many years experience working as a therapist in a women’s centre in Kingston Upon Thames. It is here that I have gained a particular interest in working with anxiety, trauma and abuse.
I also run a successful private practice in Teddington and am a member of The Third Practice, a psychotherapy and counselling service that offers training and supervision to professionals in the field as well as psychotherapy to individuals seeking help.
Prior to my psychotherapeutic training and qualifications I worked in the criminal justice system with people suffering from serious addiction, mental health problems and damaging patterns of behaviour. I
have always worked in the voluntary and public sectors in a therapeutic capacity and so my experience is built up over many years of both theoretical study and therapeutic experience.
I work within, and abide by, the BACP code of ethics http://www.bacp.co.uk/ethical_framework/
