About me and my therapy practice
I work humanistically with adults and young people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Along side my general counselling and psychotherapy practice I specialise in eating disorders. I have extensive experience helping to treat diverse mental health issues and challenging life circumstances. Sessions may offer you the opportunity to take part in a creative process that aims to equip you with the know how to live your life more resourcefully. Learn skills, tools and techniques which may be individually taylored to support your psychological wellbeing. Sessions can be arranged on a short term basis or open ended contract both with review processes included in sessions. Fees can be paid through your health insurance company or by self funding.
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and supervisor with a Masters Degree in Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy; I am a Master Practitioner in Practitioner Skills for Eating Disorders and Obesity; and hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I studied CBT with the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre. I am currently studying a PhD on autism in psychotherapy.
I began working with clients in 1999 and established my private practice in 2001. From 2003 to 2018 I worked with an NHS Eating Disorders Service and have been a Network Practitioner for the National Centre for Eating Disorders since 2001. I worked as a group facilitator with the Bridge Pastoral Foundation on their 4 year Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. Chair for Reading Therapies Group from 2010-2017 and a committee member for 16 years. I facilitate and design workshops on eating disorder interventions. I have a specialist interest in Asperger's and spectrum conditions. In 2011-15 I served on the UKCP HIPC Ethics and Complaints Committees and was a member of the Review Group for the Central Complaints Process.
