I have worked as a therapist in a number of different charitable organisations; however, my private practice is my main work where I aim to provide a reflective space where you can talk, think and explore whatever is on your mind in a safe and confidential environment.
Experience & Expertise
My experience in therapeutic environments extends over 18 years. It includes significant experience in Therapeutic Communities, comprising of working in a homeless community offering an alternative to residential rehabilitation and offering mental and emotional support to people with complex needs. I also have vast experience of working long term with young people and adults suffering from severe emotional difficulties, with disturbing behaviours, criminality and violence.
Training & Qualifications
After a career in social care, I went on to train as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist at the Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling, in London. I completed a rigorous British Psychoanalytic Council and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy accredited training, gaining experience through seminars and clinical practice. I continue to embark on professional development, including training at the British Psychotherapy Foundation, undertaking a two year long infant observation.
I am a registered member of the BPC and the BACP; working to their code of ethics.
