I am a fully accredited BACP counsellor and senior psychotherapist having completed a UKCP course in advanced psychotherapy which is also part of a PhD programme at CCPE. I am also an individual and group supervisor having qualified at the Institute of Group Psychoanalysis (IGA).
I work with people on a wide array of issues, including depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship difficulties, parenting, family building, identify formation, grief, and loss.
As a counsellor I have worked in various settings including; running a counselling project for a primary school, worked with adolescents in an HE setting and various charities across London. I have also been fortunate enough to have worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds, including investment bankers, LGBT community, actors, priests and asylum seekers.
Before training as a counsellor, I spent over ten years working in marketing and business development for various large FMCG and professional services organisations. Whilst they may seem like different roles (10 years ago I was giving presentations in Tokyo about transfer pricing!), there is one thing both professions have in common which is understanding what it means to be human and what drives us to make decisions and the environmental factors that shape who we are.
At present I work as as a lecturer teaching integrative counselling and psychotherapy. I have set up my own private practice where I work as an organisational consultant and trainer as well as seeing clients on a 1-2-1 basis.
