About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced Integrative Addiction and Behaviour Therapist and work with children, adolescents and adults.
I hold a Masters in Addiction Psychology and Counselling, I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), an Accredited Member of the Drug and Alcohol Professionals (FDAP), a Certified Motivational Interviewing Practitioner and an iheart Facilitator.
For over 20 years, I have supported people to flourish in a range of personal, social, academic and professional environments and have experience of working in both public and private rehabilitation sectors where I occupy a position within the NHS as an Addiction Therapist.
A key focus for me is my passion for child welfare as I firmly believe that if we don't have broken children, we are much less likely to have broken adults. As a result, I strive to implement, research and develop early intervention strategies for young people and my current research piece concerning metacognitions, parenting styles and cannabis use has recently been published. I also speak publicly and have recently featured at the Harrow SEND conference and was on a panel of experts for the annual Disordered Eating Conference which was held at London's St. Pancras Hospital.
I have a warm, person-centered and solution-focused approach to my therapy where I uphold that every person has the innate ability to thrive. By focusing on the trinity of thoughts, feelings and behaviours, I enable my clients to identify where their issues lay and to notice how and where they can make positive choices that are right for them.
In concluding work with me, clients report having increased levels of confidence, self-esteem and autonomy which leads to them being more resilient, having a greater level of emotional intelligence and a better sense of self overall.
