Before qualifying as a psychotherapist, I worked for many years at a senior level in both the public and private sectors within the human resources profession.
I particularly enjoyed the inter-personal relationship side of my HR role and this led me to make my own personal transition into psychotherapy as a profession.
My psychotherapy and counselling training was undertaken at the School of Psychotherapy & Psychology at Regent’s University London. The training also included clinical practice in both the NHS and charity sector.
As a qualified psychotherapist, I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I'm also an affiliate member of the British Menopause Society (BMS).
My therapeutic way of working can be described as integrative, which blends psychoanalytic, existential and humanistic theory and practice.
Essentially, this allows for a flexible therapeutic approach, whereby the client and therapist explore the nature of how we relate to each other and the world around us, which is an integral part of the therapeutic process.
It is my belief that the client will determine what they bring to therapy which can be helpful when someone is trying to gain a greater understanding of their self and how they relate to others.
