About me and my therapy practice

I am an addiction psychotherapist (MSc) and general counsellor. I think it is hard for individuals to understand the power and confusion created from a difficult relationship with addictive substances or behaviours, this can be even more challenging for the loved ones of a soul captivated by addiction. I have considerable experience in the field of addiction and the many other challenges that underlie addiction such as developmental trauma, depression, anxiety and BPD. I feel it is a privilege to support anyone who has the courage to face these issues in their life. I think it is important for clients to be given a good understanding of recovery, as well as knowledge of how their condition developed. I am happy to discuss the process of what this journey will look like.

Qualifications, Training and Experience 

I am a fully qualified integrative therapist with an MSc in Addiction Psychology and Counselling from London South Bank University.

I trained at the Priory Hospital North London before joining the Addiction Treatment Programme as a qualified therapist. I have had six years’ experience working both with addiction and the underlying causes such as anxiety, depression, personality disorders and developmental trauma. In addition, I see a range of clients in my private practice in the general psychiatry field.

I remain committed to my education and have spent the past two years undertaking a BACP accredited Diploma in Counselling at the Gestalt Centre, which involves intensive professional practice and training alongside theoretical education (completion summer 2023).
