As a fully qualified and accredited senior practitioner and supervisor, I have experience of working with clients with a wide range of backgrounds and issues. I offer psychotherapy and counselling to individuals and couples, and have helped clients with the following problems,
Change and transition (Work, home, separation/divorce, retirement)
Crime – Victims and offenders
Panic disorders and attacks
Self-development (personal and professional)
Work and career
The values that are central to my work as a therapist are my wish to honour my client’s personal truth, and a deep respect for their understanding and experience of their world and the presenting issues within it. I aim to relate to my clients with consistently high levels of personal integrity, honesty, and congruence, and openly embrace all aspects of diversity and difference that I meet in my practice. I hope to be able to help alleviate my clients’ personal distress and suffering, support them in developing a more meaningful sense of self, and increasing their personal effectiveness. My approach is designed to facilitate the spirit of enquiry and self-actualisation, and support and promote my clients’ personal, social and emotional integration through the process of therapeutic change.
Alongside my private practice, I currently work as a clinical lead within forensic settings in NHS Healthcare departments.
I undertook my psychotherapy training at The Metanoia Institute in West London, and my supervision training at The Minster Centre in North London. I have been working with clients on a one to one, couple and group basis since 2008 and have worked in a number of therapeutic settings. This includes Private Practice, MCPS Psychotherapy and Counselling service, HMP Pentonville mental health team, The Koan Practice, and The Atrium Therapy Group.
I have a background in commercially successful start-ups, and have twenty plus years’ experience of management, senior management and executive roles. I aim to actively integrate my professional experiences outside of my clinical practice into my work as a therapist, and am able to offer my clients a unique and detailed understanding of the challenges that they face in their working world.
I am accredited in the UK as an Integrative Psychotherapist by UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
