I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice awarded by Roehampton University validated by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I work with individual adults (over 18s), offering once weekly counselling and psychotherapy usually on an open ended basis although a pre fixed period of work can be agreed.
I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I work with adults of all ages, on an individual, once weekly basis.
I am a graduate member of The Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling, (FPC) which is the professional body of Wpf where I trained.
I adhere to the codes of ethics of the above organisations, working to the highest standards of confidentiality and professional practice. I am also committed to continuous professional development and regularly attend courses arranged by professional organisations.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked as a counsellor in the charity sector, with WPF Therapy and Sutton Counselling both organisations provide affordable therapy for the local community.
I began training as a therapist in 2004 having worked for several years in roles supporting parents and carers of children with learning difficulties and physical disabilities. I have also undertaken voluntary work within specialist provisions assisting autistic and disabled children and young adults.
I recognise the strain which caring can bring to a family and the issues which can affect parents/partners/young adults and children.
