QualificationsI completed an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling (BACP accredited training) at CPPD Counselling School in 2006 and have worked in private practice since 2007. I completed an Advanced Diploma and an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre in 2012 (UKCP accredited training). My training involved humanistic and psychodynamic approaches. I am a UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) registered psychotherapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I am also a graduate of the University of Edinburgh (MA Hons) and hold a Postgraduate Certificate of Education from the University of Bristol. I have a background of working in education.
In addition to my private work, my counselling experience includes working as a counsellor in a school, a youth centre and in a GP practice. I also currently work for a low cost therapy service in North London. I am also a trustee of Cocoon Family Support, a charity providing support to women affected by perinatal mental health issues and their families, and have previously overseen their counselling service.
I am fully insured to practise as a counsellor and psychotherapist and have regular supervision in accordance with the guidelines of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
