UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
I'm a psychotherapist and counsellor with more than five years experience, working in a number of different contexts, initially as a University Counsellor at London Metropolitan University, then within the NHS working with G.P. referrals for the London Boroughs of Croydon and Lambeth and most recently in private practice. I trained as a counsellor and psychotherapist after many years working in book publishing and what both my careers share is a commitment to the idea that communication facilitates growth. I was drawn to psychotherapy by my own experience of how a good therapist helped me to unpick my family dynamic and better understand how my past influenced my present relationships.
I've an M.A. in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling from the University of Sheffield. I am an accredited member of the UKCP and a member of the BACP and abide by the ethical codes of both organisations. Though my core training was as an existential therapist, I work integratively. This means I draw on a number of therapeutic modalities including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural and Mindfulness approaches.
