Training & qualifications

I completed my clinical training with the well-respected Metanoia Institute in London where I completed my doctorate in Counselling Psychology (CPsychol) and clinical diploma’s in integrative and psychodynamic psychotherapy. As part of my training, I have spent time on placements in a variety of mental health settings, including a psychiatric hospital specialising in complex mental illness, brain injury and dementia. Within my practice, I specialise in working with complex trauma and family estrangement, with the latter being the topic of my doctoral research.

Additionally, I am a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a fully accredited Clinical Integrative Psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). 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.
