Experience and Training
I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy from Regent's University; a certificate in Counselling Skills from Tower Hamlets College; 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.
In private practice I have experience working with workplace stress, bullying and burnout as well as issues involving sexuality, and confusion of identity.
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; 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.
