I am a qualified, experienced psychotherapist registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP. Finally I am also a member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling FPC, the professional body of WPFtherapy in London Bridge where I trained.
I’m an accredited practitioner of Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy which is a time limited therapy for anxiety and depression. I have many years experience as a teacher, in a variety of settings including the Special Needs sector and therefore unique insight into a range of development disorders and their impact on families. Therapeutically, I am particularly interested in addiction and its impact on families. I am a media volunteer for the National Association for Children of Alcoholics NCOA. I am familiar with the challenges of long term recovery from addiction. The psychology of addiction is a research interest of mine. I have a long term interest in mindfulness which has a growing research base in treatment for anxiety and depression. This informs my approach to therapy.
