I have an MSc in Psychology (with distinction), a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and since 2014, I have been studying for a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology with the well-respected Metanoia Institute in London. Upon completion, I will be a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and fully accredited with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Health & Care Professionals Council (HCPC). Training with the Metanoia Institute is seen to be among the most demanding and is highly respected in the field of counselling and psychotherapy.
Currently, I am a post-graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) with Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) and a registered trainee member with the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy). I abide by the UKCP and BPS strict ethical frameworks for good practice in ‘Counselling and Psychotherapy’. Within these, I am required to maintain client confidentiality and I attend regular supervision of my clinical practice so that I conscientiously provide my clients with an ethically sound and professional service.
Although I am counsellor and psychotherapist in the UK, my doctoral qualification will be recognised in France by the European Association for Psychotherapy so that I can practice with the title of psychologue and psychothérapeute. In the meantime, I am practicing with the title of “counsellor,” which is not a regulated title in France.
