About Me

 

I am BACP Senior Accredited and on the BACP Register; this means I have met a certain standard of training and experience and I have to renew this annually.  I am in regular supervision, as necessary for accreditation, and am subject to the BACP's grievance procedures.

 

I have been a practising counsellor and psychotherapist for two decades, and a supervisor for some time.  After a diploma level training in Psychodynamic Counselling, I also completed an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy with Children & Adolescents.  Although my main training is psychodynamic, I have a base training in person-centred therapy. .

 

I also have a Diploma in Integrative Supervision with Groups and Individuals, a Certificate in Online Counselling (OCST) and a Certificate in Psychopathology.

 

My background in is the arts, mostly theatre and music. I am also interested in Mindfulness practice and holistic therapies in general, as well as literature and gardening.

 

I have worked in the voluntary sector, the NHS and education.  I have set up and managed community-based counselling services for young people and adults, as well as school counselling services.  I currently manage a voluntary sector counselling service in Wimbledon and run a small private practice.
