I am a caring and professional person with 35 years of experience working with individuals of all ages, couples and families on many different issues. I am a trained Clinical Psychologist and Marital/Family Therapist who has worked within the NHS, with NGOs and privately both in my consultation room and online with individuals, couples and families and children (online work is only with adults and older adolescents, individuals and couples). I am registered and work according to the professional ethics of the BPS, UKCP and HCPC (see below). I offer afternoon and some evening and weekend appointments. Reduced fees are negotiable.
Training, qualifications and experience:
M.Phil Clinical Psychology (Institute of Psychiatry, London University)
3 year Diploma in Marital and Family Therapy (Institute of Family therapy London)
PhD Social Anthropology (London School of Economics and Political Science, London)
I am an "integrative holistic therapist", meaning I am qualified in different schools of psychotherapy and combine them in the treatment of clients depending on their preferences and the issue at hand. I do not believe that counseling or therapy is a one size fits all and during our initial sessions we can decide together which approach may be helpful for you and the difficulties you are experiencing. I take into consideration all aspects of the person's life being mindful of not only the emotional and psychological aspects but also the physiological and the wider social world, our relationships, history, culture and spirituality.
