My Qualifications and Experience
I qualified twenty years ago, with a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from the Central School of Counselling and Therapy in London. Since then I have undertaken training in a number of areas including Understanding Trauma (Principles and Practice) at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust as well as numerous workshops. Before establishing my private practice, I worked as a Bereavement Counsellor for five years, a young people’s counsellor for eight years and spent seven years in the corporate sector, working for an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), the last three years in management, offering short term counselling and specialist trauma / critical incident support. My particular areas of interest are working with bereavement, trauma and young people. I currently work in Private Practice as a Psychodynamic Counsellor and I also work for a number of EAP's as a specialist Trauma Responder, attending incidents across across the UK offering Psychological First Aid.
I also have an MA (Distinction) in 'Psychodynamic Approaches to Working with Adolescents' from the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust and most recently I qualified as a Supervisor with a Diploma (Distinction) from the SAP (Society of Analytical Psychology). I offer Supervision in my private practice and I also manage a small counselling service for a Post Graduate Arts University in London.Professional Membership:
