I am a UKCP and BACP registered Integrative Psychotherapist, currently in the final stages of a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology & Psychotherapy, accredited by the Health Professionals Council (HPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). I have several years clinical experience working as a counsellor and psychotherapist with a diverse range of clients within the NHS, mental health charities, the voluntary sector, educational settings and private practice. My wide-ranging training in psychotherapy, psychology, gender and social studies, education and human development, enables me to adopt a flexible approach to my work with clients and to respond to the distinct personal situation of each individual, within their particular social environment.
I am a member of the Metanoia Institute, a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a registered member of both the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a practitioner member of the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network. I subscribe to the BPS, UKCP, BACP and Metanoia Institute's codes of Ethics.
In order to practice well and ethically, I believe that therapists need to know themselves well. The years I have spent in my own personal psychotherapy have not only been personally transformational, but have also given me insight into what it feels like to be in the client's chair. As a therapist, I continue to ensure the quality of my work by seeking regular consultation.
