I believe that compassion, collaboration and respect are at the heart of a healing therapeutic relationship. I won't judge you or tell you what you should or shouldn't do. I will listen to you and I will facilitate your listening to your own inner knowledge. I practice mindfulness with clients if they are interested as I also believe that learning to listen to your body can help you regulate your emotions and help you understand yourself better. As an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist I have trained in a number of different therapy modalities, including emotional regulation, trauma, attachment and psychodynamic theory. This means I can adapt my way of working to what suits you and what you feel you need. It is always an honour to work with my clients. I am inspired by my clients' bravery and honesty and I learn from everyone I work with. Alongside my private practice I continue to add to my knowledge and experience by regularly attending additional training courses.
I offer a safe, calm and welcoming space in a peaceful, semi-rural setting which is easily accessible from the A40/M40 or Seer Green train station and offers ample parking. I trained at the Minster Centre in London, one of the oldest and most respected integrative training courses in the UK. I have an M.A. in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from Middlesex University; a Postgraduate Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy; a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling; and an M.A in Psychology and Philosophy from Oxford University. My previous careers included working in Advertising in London and San Francisco and working for an Animal Protection charity in London. I lived in America for 11 years and worked with helping vulnerable mothers adjust to becoming a parent.
In addition to private practice I have also worked at a GP's surgery and a low cost counselling service and have volunteered at SLAM ( South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust). I am also currently a teaching associate at the Minster Centre.
