Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor
I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor and have been in practice for over 10 years. I currently manage an inpatient treatment programme at Roehampton Priory Hospital in London.
I can confidentially help clients with a range of issues. You may be suffering from anxiety or relationship issues, you may have suffered a bereavement, have difficulties at work or want to talk about your level of alcohol use. I am also very experienced in supporting people struggling from the impact of someone else’s behaviour. Sometimes you might not even know what is wrong; you may be feeling sad or that you need some space and time for you and for someone to just to listen.
My experience and commitment will enable me to support you and listen to you without judgement; I appreciate that it can be a daunting experience to come to counselling. I have great admiration for all my clients who take risks and strive to not only feel better but to understand themselves on a deeper level.
I have trained with Pia Melody at The Meadows in Arizona in her pioneering developmental childhood trauma model of therapy. I am passionate about investigating the possible impacts the messages we received in childhood have on our lives today.
I have been a counsellor in a variety of settings including the Prison Service and private hospitals/rehabilitation clinics. I have also worked with children and young people in the community. As well as extensive experience work with individuals I am also a group psychotherapist and have worked with couples and families as part of my work in treatment centres.
My training gives me a humanistic basis allowing empathy and ultimate faith in your ability to be your own best healer. This combined with my experience in 12 step treatment, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) and Trauma Therapy allows me to offer a diverse range of resources and treatment styles to best to support you.
