MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling 

 

I am a qualified, integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, and a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work within and am bound by their ethical frameworks. I trained for six years at the Minster Centre.

 

I have a range of experience gained from working with clients in the NHS and voluntary sector. Most recently, I worked for two years in the Grenfell community. I have specialist training and experience in working with trauma and loss.

 

I am also experienced working with:

  • Anxiety

  • Bereavement

  • Bullying

  • Depression

  • Domestic abuse

  • Family and relationship difficulties 

  • Sexual abuse

  • Suicidal thoughts

  • Work-related stress

 

Alongside my private practice, I am doing a PhD in the intergenerational trauma of suicide in families. I also teach undergraduates and postgraduates. Before becoming a therapist, I worked in fundraising and marketing for national and international charities. 

 

Why did I become a therapist?


I firmly believe that within each of us lies innate potential beyond our imagination. But life can throw things at us that block us. Deciding to train as a therapist was a significant step for me. It's an utter privilege to work with individuals to unpack and explore their struggles at depths that most non-therapeutic relationships rarely reach.
