I come from a medical background having worked in Cancer Research and Dentistry, and I started my Counselling & Psychotherapy career in the mid nineties, after experiencing what counselling was like for myself. I found the whole process was exactly what I needed, so decided to go on in my career to help others in the same way, and of course a requirement of the training was to be in my own Therapy.
I trained for five years in South West London to gain an Advanced Diploma, followed by completing a Masters Degree in Harley Street London W1 with Professor Petruska Clarkson in 2004. Continued Professional Development (CPD) is a requirement so continuing to update the training is ongoing to the current day. I have worked on NHS Clinical Trials at the University of Reading, and with several London boroughs in local Government to troubled families. I have worked for over 25 years in mental health, and I am passionate about children & young people receiving the help they need at an early stage before their difficulties become entrenched.
As a qualified Teacher, I have led training on Counselling courses, and I have developed and delivered Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) courses for Local Government, along with lecturing in other subjects including Mental Health, Human Development and Research. I am a Integrative Practitioner, which means I can adapt my approach to what you currently require.
I am a MBACP registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor, and am accredited in Evidence based Parenting Education. This assists parents to develop new skills to their parenting style. I adhere to the 'British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy' (BACP) Ethical Framework and Code of Practice, whereby clients can rely on complete confidentiality. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
