I have received an MA in Psychotherapy from The Minster Centre. I also have an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling and a Diploma in Clinical Supervision from CPPD which are BACP accredited courses. I have also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am an Accredited member of the BACP and the UKRCP as well as registered with the UKCP. I am therefore bound by their professional standards and ethics. I am an integrative practitioner which means I draw from many approaches to therapy depending on the issues and/or client suitability. My experience as a therapist is varied, having worked with The Place To Be, Haringey Council , Open Door (all with young people), Brent Alcohol and Counselling Service and Mind (both adult work). I enjoy working in private practice with clients from a wide range of ages and backgrounds. My own background is in music and I therefore like to look at the therapeutic work as something co-created. My belief is that we all have the ability to create the lives we wish to lead. This may of course sometimes be difficult, but I feel that it is in approaching life in a creative way that possibilities can be explored.
I am also a founder of Sail To Clarity, a company that uniquely runs personal and professional development workshops and trainings as well as private charters from a sports cruiser boat on the Medway River in North Kent.
