PIC 2 bwI am a qualified psychotherapist practising both privately and within the third sector.  I hold a Clinical Diploma and MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling, and a Foundation Certificate in Interpersonal and Counselling Skills. I trained at the Metanoia Institute, one of the leading clinical and academic institutions for psychotherapy in the UK.

I am a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I abide by their ethical framework. I am therefore committed to my personal development as a practitioner: I attend regular clinical supervision and CPD to support my work. Areas of particular interest and specialism include trauma, somatic therapies, and the impact of marginalisation. I am currently training as a yoga teacher and I invite clients to involve their bodies in their psychotherapeutic work.

I have worked with clients from a range of cultural backgrounds, across a variety of settings, including at the Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service, Refugee CouncilHighbury Counselling Centre, Centrepoint and Room to Heal.

  • Low mood and depression
