I have completed a BA Psychology and hold an MSc in Person Centred Psychotherapy from Middlesex University and a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from Metanoia Institute, London, UK. These training courses combined humanistic and experiential models of working.
I have been practicing as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2009 in various settings where I have gained invaluable experience working with people with a variety of concerns such as: depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, relationship difficulties, work difficulties, low self-esteem, loss and trauma.
Relevant to my therapeutic work, I worked in UK based university counselling services and various acute mental health settings, such as Arbours Association and The Centre for Better Health, and charities, such as The Maytree Suicide Respite Centre, Westminster Mind and City & Hackney Mind.
I am an accredited member of the UK Council For Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) – the two principal accrediting bodies for counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK - and a certified member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). All three bodies have extensive and rigorous criteria for accreditation.
