My interest in therapy began after a very positive personal experience as a client. I was also deeply impacted when volunteering at an unplanned pregnancy centre. I saw first hand just how invaluable a safe and confidential space can be, where the integrity of the individual and their experience could be held and understood. This led me to leave my former career in the arts and embark on my training.
I have trained at The Minster Centre, a leading institute in Integrative Psychotherapy. I currently hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling, and near completion of my Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy.
As well as seeing clients in private practice I have extensive experience working in the third sector. Currently at Crossroad Counselling, a low cost service in Tower Hamlets, and previously at Choices Islington, providing specialised support for pregnancy loss. I also worked with their team in Holloway Prison. These experiences have given me the chance to work with a huge diversity of client, facing a large variety of challenges. I have continually been encouraged by the change my clients have seen in their lives through therapy - predominantly through healthier relationships with themselves and others.
As a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) I abide by their code of ethics, which includes regular supervision of my work and ongoing professional development.
