Counselling and Psychotherapy
I bring over 10 years experience to my counselling and psychotherapy work of supporting people facing severe difficulty and distress in a variety of settings. For instance, I have worked with a mental health charity supporting both carers and individuals affected by mental illness. Many of these individuals have experienced serious mental health diagnoses such as schizophrenia and personality disorders.
I have worked in private and public sector counselling and psychotherapy services (such as Mind and the NHS) throughout London, Kent and Essex; where I have provided support to people with a range of needs (see Psychotherapy or Counselling?).
I hold full indemnity insurance and abide by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework (BACP), the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy’s Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct (UKCP) and the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists Code of Ethics and Practice (COSRT).
Along with my clinical practice I continue to teach, having taught both psychodynamic and humanistic students in clinical training. I also provide Clinical Supervision.
