UKCP accredited, MA(merit), BSc(Hons), PGDip. PGcert

I trained at The Gestalt Centre London, which is London's leading providers of counselling and psychotherapy training based on the Gestalt principles.​​

I have extensive experience working in the mental health sector, including mental health management across London. As well as experience working alongside multi-disciplinary teams within the NHS and in the charity sector. In both my professional career and professional training I have been dedicated to understanding and helping individuals experiencing a variety of psychological/emotional difficulties. 

My experience and variety of roles working in this sector have allowed me to gain first-hand experience and understanding of a variety of psychological/emotional difficulties and distress. Furthermore, the depth of my experience has allowed me to work with a number of people from different social and cultural backgrounds, which has allowed me to be understanding and open to individual difference, diversity and culture, something which I feel is important in this field and has enriched the way work.


Lastly, as an accredited psychotherapist with the UKCP, I  abide by all their codes of ethics such as;
