I am a experienced and fully qualified psychotherapist working in Central London within easy reach of Holborn, Covent Garden, Bloomsbury Kings very near Chancery Lane.
I take an integrative and relational approach with my clients. This means I attend to each person as a whole, their thoughts, feelings, perceptions, physical experience and the relationship between us. It also means that I take into account that there are different ways, or therapeutic frameworks, to look at and explore our experiences. I am not limited by one theoretical viewpoint and so am able to work with clients in a non-judgemental, collaborative and creative way. In my experience, building an open and trusting relationship is key to successful therapy. There is much research to support this view.
There is often confusion around some of the terminology used in therapy, the distinction between ‘counselling’ and ‘psychotherapy’ being a common one. I would use the term ‘counselling’ to refer to working on specific issues, very often in a time limited way and ‘psychotherapy’ to describe a more open ended journey and exploration of your world. As we progress, we may move from focusing on immediate problems or symptoms to exploring how you might lead a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I have particular expertise in the area of bereavement and loss but have also helped clients with issues, not limited to, but including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, problems at work, identity, sexuality and confidence.
I am committed to working on my personal and professional integration through reflective practice, supervision and further training.
Training and qualifications
I have a MA and an advanced diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from The Minster Centre. I am accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have a particular interest in loss, creativity, identity; what has made us who we are today. For my Master’s thesis I completed a research project exploring the identity of adults who had lost a parent during their childhood or adolescence. A summary of this research was published in the UKCP magazine The Psychotherapist in July 2016.
Areas of interest
Depression; anxiety; family and relationship issues; grief; long term impact of loss; identity; creativity.
