I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society working with a wide range of emotional difficulties. In particular, I am highly skilled in working with relationship difficulties, interpersonal struggles and family issues, as well as in depression, anxiety, OCD and Asperger’s Syndrome.
Although trained in a number of different therapy models, I work primarily within a Psychodynamic framework. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to help people realise their full potential in their current life by understanding fully, issues which may be holding them back. I can also offer interventions in Mindfulness and Compassion Focussed therapy. Suitability can be discussed at assessment.
I have previously had over 13 years experience as a senior psychologist at the Priory Hospital in North London working with inpatients and day patients in both group therapy and individually. I also have experience working for the NHS, University counselling services, in Private practice and at the Hoffman Foundation for Autism.
I am a RAPPS Registered Supervisor, specialising in Psychodynamic Supervision and have a wealth of experience supervising Clinical and Counselling Psychologists and other Healthcare professionals.
I am also a lecturer in Counselling Psychology at the University of Worcester and Co-Course leader for the Msc Counselling programme.
