The diversity of my rich, cultural background is reflected in the multiplicity of work and trainings I have undertaken. I use a relational, integrative approach, that is inclusive in addressing and assimilating the mind, body, emotions and for some spiritual beliefs. I am particularly interested in latest research on polyvagal theory, brain plasticity, body psychotherapy, meditation and incorporate this into my work with you. In particular, Eye Movement Desensitization and reprocessing is also an integral part of my work which is supported by the National Health Services and World Health Organisation as an effective treatment for trauma.
Therapy with me is about transformation, connecting to a way of being where hope rather than the hurts you have experienced shape your future.
I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist, EMDR consultant, supervisor and organisational consultant, with over 30 years clinical experience offering: individual and group therapy, supervision and consultation to the National Health Service (Tavistock and Portman NHS, Kings College, Institute Psychiatry, Maudsley Hospital, West London Mental Health NHS), and voluntary sector. I have worked with a variety of client groups, with a complex history of clinical severity across a range of care settings.
