I am a fully qualified, BACP Accredited Counsellor with over 10 years of experience.
Since obtaining my degree in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute in London, I have continued professional training and added a range of counselling techniques, including: hypnotherapy, group therapy, and specialist addiction and bereavement therapies.
I have particular experience working with depression, anxiety and stress. Due to continuing Covid uncertainty many of my clients are struggling with anxiety and looking for ways of managing panic attacks.
Insomnia is another issue that is prevalent in the current situation that counselling can help you with.
Clients looking for ways to manage work or other stress often find learning the mindfulness technique useful. Mindfulness has always been at the core of my practice, due to my interest in Buddhist philosophy and many years of Yoga practice.
Often, my clients have complex relationship issues, which they would like to solve through counselling.
With other clients, I use coaching techniques to help them overcome professional challenges and achieve personal growth.
Away from private practice, I have worked with Mind, the mental health charity, in secondary schools and for an international health clinic abroad. I volunteer for the Birth Trauma Association, helping new mothers suffering from post-natal depression. I also help as a consultant on a range of film and theatre projects.
Originally, after gaining a degree in Art History, I worked for several years as an Account Executive at an international advertising agency and as a Marketing Executive for a multinational. This background gives me an insight into work stress issues and organisational dynamics.
I follow the BACP Code of Ethics.
