Training, qualifications & experience
Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling (CPPD, 2015)
In addition to my private practice, I have several years of experience working with a wide range of issues in both long-term and time limited therapy. I have worked as a bereavement counsellor for Brent Bereavement Service and as an integrative therapist for the short-term counselling service at Mind.
My background is in teaching, working with children with special educational needs and also in holistic complementary therapies.
I am a BACP accredited, experienced integrative counsellor offering weekly one-to-one counselling sessions. My style is empathic and sensitive, responsive to what each person brings to the session. It could be a particular problem such as anxiety or depression, or you could be looking for help with a more vague sense of something being wrong.
The integrative nature of my training allows me to choose methods that would be most helpful for you. I blend together humanistic and psychodynamic approaches; use metaphor, image and dreamwork; elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and mindfulness. The sessions can be supportive, exploratory, or very practical - equipping you with tools that you can use outside of the session.
