I trained as an integrative psychotherapist which means I have knowledge and experience of a number of different psychotherapeutic approaches and theories. All of these have therapeutic value and can complement each other when an integrative approach is taken.
Such an approach considers each person as a whole. My view is that there are many ways in which a person's experience can be explored and understood. Therefore I seek to take the mental, physical, emotional as well as social and spiritual needs of each individual into account and to promote wholeness in all aspects of a person's being.
I see clients on both a short term basis (usually 8 to 12 sessions) and on a longer term basis, with opportunities for review.
I trained at The Minster Centre and have an MA and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling, from the Minster Centre & Middlesex University. I am a registered psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and BACP and am subject to their Ethics framework and complaints procedures.
I have been seeing clients in both long and short term settings since 2008, and have worked successfully with adults of different ages, class, ethnicity, sexuality and physical ability. My aim is to value and respect the unique experience of each individual. For three years I was a counsellor at the Metro Centre in Greenwich working in their Counselling and mental health service.
Sessions cost £50 to £70 depending on location. However, a limited number of daytime sessions may be available at lower cost in cases of financial difficulty. There may be a waiting list for these sessions.
In Central London, I am based within short walking distance of Oxford Circus.
In Horsham, I am based in Bishopric, very close to the centre of town.
