About me and my therapy practice

My training at Re-Vision was in Integrative Transpersonal Counselling and prior to this, I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in the Therapeutic Arts from the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education, meaning that my approach is creative and flexible, depending on who I am working with.

I am also an active musician and have worked in music education for many years. I worked with all students of ages, from pre-school to adult learners and was also a music practitioner in a Special Educational Needs school.

My private practice is in Hackney Central - you can find the location here. My background as a counsellor involves working for Mind in North East London and at the Centre for Better Health in Hackney.

I fully abide by the BACP codes of ethics.

Integrative:

Each therapeutic encounter is unique. This means my training has taught me to weave different branches of psychotherapeutic theories together, trusting that several ‘truths’ can co-exist. An integrative approach encourages us to be curious about the past and present, whilst also giving a place to imagination and the possibility of new ideas.

Transpersonal:

I work holistically, from a soulful perspective. Soul means many things, but I often think of soul as intuition - something that lives within and tells us whether to go left or right; a quiet voice that often knows the answer to things that we think we can’t comprehend. Transpersonal therapy seeks to reconnect to this soulful voice, at a pace that feels right. Sometimes in therapy, “I don’t know” tells us everything about where we need to be.
