I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I trained as a psychotherapist at Regents University with a PGDip in Psychotherapy and Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am also a qualified EMDR therapist and am a member of the EMDR Association. I also hold a BA degree.
I currently work in private practice and previously with the NHS in a hospital setting seeing patients in long-term therapy. Through clinical work in the NHS, the charitable and university sectors, and my own practice, I have extensive experience working with clients with a wide range of issues and from diverse backgrounds.
Prior to training as a psychotherapist I worked in the finance and commercial sectors. I bring a broad understanding of the private sector to my work and appreciate the pressures of trying to achieve a balance between life and work. Having lived abroad, I recognize the conflicts and concerns of living as an expatriate and understand and respect cultural differences.
