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.
My current research interests surround the issue of family estrangement and this is the topic of my doctoral research, which has been approved by the Metanoia Institute.
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.
