Experience and Training
I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy from Regent's University. I also hold a certificate in Counselling Skills from Tower Hamlets College and a Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling from the Psychotherapy and Hypnosis Training Association. I am currently working towards a doctorate in existential psychotherapy.
I have worked in several charities and have experience of supporting people who are struggling through a difficult pregnancy, with pregnancy loss, and parents who are grieving the death of a baby.
I worked for both Childline and Refuge and understand the complexities involved in abusive relationships and the legacy of those experiences for people striving to recover from them.
I have extensive experience working with people who are impacted by the burdens of a chronic health condition (whether their own or someone they care for) and those who are facing life-changing diagnoses.
Therapy can be especially meaningful for those who live with debilitating symptoms but have received no diagnosis despite many tests and medical appointments.
Outside of my private practice I work in the NHS as a member of the biofeedback treatment team in St Mark's hospital, Harrow .
My background equips me to work with people who are experiencing loss and grief, anxiety and depression, fears for their health and crises in their relationships, and with those who are questioning the meaning and direction of their lives.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Society for Existential Analysis.
