Qualifications & Experience

You may have questions about my training, experience and the way I work which I will do my best to answer – I try to work in a transparent way.

I am an experienced and effective psychotherapist, registered with the United Kingdom Council for Counselling & Psychotherapy (UKCP). I abide by their Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.

I’m an ‘integrative therapist’ – for me that reflects my curiosity about the human condition and the many different ways to make sense of this. I draw on a range of ideas in my work with clients including existential-phenomenological inquiry; integrative arts and person centred psychotherapy.

I have undertaken the following formal training in addition to many other professional development activities.

  • Online Course – Neurobiology and its Applications to Psychotherapy
  • MA Existential Psychotherapy & Counselling
  • Certificate Therapeutic and Educational Application of the Arts
  • Certificate Person Centered Counselling
  • Transactional Analysis 101 (EATA)
  • CRUSE Bereavement Care Programme
  • MA Management and Organisational Learning

I have experience of working as a counsellor with CRUSE and Kingston Bereavement Service and with an NHS neuro-rehabilitation service. I have also worked with the student counselling service at Portsmouth University. I have been working in private practice since 2009.

In addition to working in private practice, I also work with voluntary and public sector organisations supporting personal and professional development programmes. I specialise in-group  facilitation for conflict resolution, team building, reflective practice and action learning.
