I have been fortunate enough to see first-hand the benefits of therapy and I believe in its ability to turn people's lives around.
Psychology is my second career and has been a pivotal part of my life for the past 19 years. To have the opportunity to work on a one-to-one basis and with couples is a privilege I take very seriously.
Seeking help from a qualified counsellor is not a sign of weakness, but rather the opposite. It shows strength, courage and a willingness to face your issues and deal with them. Whether you are going through a bit of a rough patch or suffer with mental health issues, therapy could be helpful in improving your situation.
I am a qualified psychotherapist with a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute and Middlesex University.
Being an integrative therapist does not mean I pick a bit here and a bit there, but rather that I am well versed in many different theories and approaches, which allows me to tailor the therapy according to the client’s specific needs.
My training consists of a BSc in Psychology, a MSc in Psychology and a BSc in Sociology in addition to the five years clinical training at Metanoia and Middlesex University.
Further university course work include drug abuse and addiction, sexology and psychosexual issues, neuro-psychology, cognitive neuro-science, forensic psychology and sociology of gender.
The knowledge we hold within the field of Psychology is based on science and empirical research from a constantly developing and evolving academic environment.
There are many different schools of thought within the field. My particular approach as an integrative therapist rests foundationally on a humanistic position and is developed further with ideas from relational psychoanalysis and developmental neuroscience, hence my focus on the relational aspects of therapy as well as a basic position of unconditional positive regard for the client.
