I completed my training at BCPC (Bath Centre for Psychotherapy & Counselling) one of Britain's top accredited training institutions. I have a Masters Degree in Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapy. Bcpc is an organisational member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am fully accredited by UKCP and as such abide by their codes of ethical and professional standards.
I am also a qualified therapist in Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (PBSP). It is a body-mind approach to psychological development , drawing on attachment theory, system- oriented principles, along with client centred attitudes, in one unified philosophy.
Being an Integrative psychotherapist means I draw on a number of different ideas and methodologies, always with the aim to fit the individual. From the oldest forms, to current methods that draw on neuroscience, i see psychotherapy as an opportunity to explore our feelings and how they influence us the way they do. I like to integrate ways of working, either through a Jungian perspective, a body focused approach, mindfulness, or more traditional methods, yet always remain open to whatever a client brings to therapy so that insight, new possibilities, compassion and connection to others can emerge.
My background: Previously i worked in Tv and film as a sound mixer/recordist. As well as my private practice I currently work in the NHS as an associate counsellor delivering therapy. I have also worked for many years in the mental health sector with individuals facing complex mental health needs and with young adults leaving the care system.
