Qualifications and Experience
Clinical Qualifications: British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Accredited Diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis Counselling from Re-Vision Centre for Integrative Psychosynthesis - December 2008. BACP Registered Counsellor since November 2013.
Some years prior to this, I completed a BSc (hons) in Policy and Cultural Studies and part of my career was spent in education within local authority sector.
I gained my therapeutic experience in a variety of settings, including Re-Visions's Low Cost Counselling Service and the school based children's counselling organisation, Place2Be. For a number of years I also held a clinical placement at One in Four, a charity which provides counselling and advocacy for people who have experienced childhood sexual abuse. I have worked as a therapist in Queens Park and Kilburn since 2009, where I see clients in private practice. Also, I work part of the week, in a West London women's organisation, as a trauma recovery therapist where I provide counselling and undertake clinical assessments.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their Code of Ethics. I receive regular clinical supervision of my work, and I am committed to ongoing professional development. Some of my further training includes:
Trauma - Somatic Healing Approach
Working with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
The Neuroscience of integrating Mind and Body
Culture and Context in Therapy
Jungian Dream / Active Imagination
Inner Listening - Mindfulness
Working creatively with Metaphor
In my experience, simply having a space where you can be witnessed in the telling of your story - perhaps for the first time - can be profoundly healing and transformative.
I provide a warm, supportive space and work collaboratively with you. I bring my authentic attention, clinical and creative skills to support you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself. What happens in sessions will vary depending on your needs, but could include imagework; body awareness; creative visualization; drawing or a simply talking and thinking together about your concerns.
I offer both open-ended and short-term counselling. Your needs can be discussed in our first meeting.
