About me and my therapy practice

I have been a fully qualified therapist for over 15 years and a registered member of the BACP and an Accredited member of IPTUK.

I originally trained and qualified as a Person-Centred Therapist in 2003 which will always be at the foundation of my therapy, although I have become more Integrative due to continued learning and therapies that I have qualified in.

In 2009 I trained at St Georges University Hospital in Tooting to become a Family Practitioner working systemically with families, couple’s adolescents and young children, I have worked with many families with vast range of issues within their family system, for example family separation, bereavement within the family unit, breakdown of communication within the family, my work has also expanded to work with families that have either fostered or adopted children.

In 2013 I trained and qualified as an accredited IPT therapist (Interpersonal Therapist) which is a specific 16 week based therapy, working with Transitions, Unresolved Grief, Disputes and Sensitivities. I have continued my training within my IPT work by attending a two-day course at the Anna Freud Centre to study Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy to work with people that have a diagnosis of Bi-Polar.

I have also worked as Clinical Lead for a mental health charity managing a team of screeners whose work was to screen GP referrals to appropriate primary or secondary mental health services.

I have worked with a wide range of issues and these below are just an example of the areas I cover.

Anxiety • Depression • All forms of Abuse • Bereavement • Childhood Trauma • Pre-and Postnatal Depression • Separation and Divorce • Self Harm • Suicidal Thoughts • Stress • Miscarriage • Self esteem • School stress • Bullying • Autism • Attachment • Anger • Stroke • Illnesses
