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/
