I am a member of the UKCP and accredited by the same organisation. I have a keen interest not just in practising psychotherapy, but also of philosophy and history. Psychological issues are intrinsically bound up with our philosophical view of the world, how we make sense of it, and interpret it. Both philosophy and psychology seek to explore this and in doing so can change our perspective. This is in part also what I do as a therapist.
My qualifications include a 1 year certificate in counselling and psychotherapy, followed by a 4 year diploma in counselling and psychotherapy, and a 2 year masters degree in counselling and psychotherapy, I am currently in the process of completing EMDR training for trauma and PTSD.
I have previously worked for BUPA psychological services as a clinical manager, CiC (Counselling in Companies), also as a clinical manager and at The Counselling Foundation as clinical director. I am currently a senior teaching fellow at Greenwich University working in the school of human sciences.
My training is an integrated, combining many approaches including psycho dynamic, cognitive (CBT) humanistic, existential and transpersonal elements. My personal approach varies from person to person, which is a strength of this training. You can find out more about my thoughts and research in other areas of the site. I work in W2, five minutes from Warwick Avenue or Paddington station, from premises overlooking Little Venice.
My face to face fees start from £70 for a fifty minute session (currently suspended due to COVID-19). Telephone and online sessions are £50 for a fifty minute session.
