I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and couples counsellor, practising both privately and within the third sector. I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling (distinction) 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 British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework. I am therefore committed to my personal development as a practitioner: I attend regular clinical supervision to support my work and am in my seventh year of an MSc/Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA), the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA) and the Metanoia Institute.
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 Council, Highbury Counselling Centre, Centrepoint and Room to Heal.
I have experience of working with people suffering with a range of difficulties including:
- Low mood and depression
- Relationship difficulties
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Sexual, physical and emotional abuse
- Intrusive thoughts and sleep problems
- Low self-esteem or self-confidence
- Sexual difficulties
- Bereavement and loss
- Issues related to gender, sexuality or identity
- Suicidal thoughts or feelings
