About Me

Experience

I have worked  for over 5 years as a psychotherapist for adults: with the NHS in 3 trusts,  the  Rock Clinic, KCA and CRI Equinox.

Education

My undergraduate degree was in Philosophy at Warwick University where I became interested in continental philosophy. I then took an MA in Existential Psychotherapy at NSPC. From there I took a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Skills

I continue to develop my therapeutic skills by regularly attending training courses in a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches. I also study philosophy, psychology and psychotherapy, my current areas of interest include depression,  focusing and compassion.

Approach

I can work in a brief therapeutic way using CBT which can be useful when there is a distinct difficulty.  Alternatively I can work in a more exploratory way using skills from the variety of psychotherapies I have trained in. This being useful with less defined difficulties.

The therapeutic approaches I mainly draw from are  CBT, Existential Psychotherapy, ACTMindfulness and Gestalt.  I am also influenced by the other therapeutic approaches I have studied.

Supervision

Following my accrediting bodies code of practice, I receive regular clinical supervision. This involves discussing themes within our work, which ensures you are getting the best treatment possible.
