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 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 have an understanding of the complexities involved in abusive relationships and the legacy of those experiences for survivors.
I have extensive experience of 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 - in particular stroke, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and cancer - as well as people who live with debilitating symptoms but have received no diagnosis despite many tests and medical appointments.
Outside of my private practice I work as a specialist clinical counsellor in the NHS with the biofeedback treatment team at St Mark's hospital in 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 those who are struggling with 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.
