I am a registered Counselling Psychologist based in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. I am registered with both the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I trained as a Counselling Psychologist at City University, London and qualified in 2007. I gained my doctoral qualification in 2009. Since qualifying I have always worked in private practice, including a therapy service on Harley Street, although I have had experience of working in the NHS and the voluntary sector also.
I work with people who come to talk about a wide range of issues and how I work can be found on the "Approach" tab above. I have a specific interest in perinatal psychology which looks at a range of psychological issues in relation to pregnancy and parenthood. This can include considering having children, conception and difficulties with this, being pregnant, fear of giving birth, birth trauma, bonding with your baby, being a parent and the effect any of these may have on your relationships. I have completed accredited training with NEST in Postnatal Care as well as various trainings and workshops in perinatal issues.
In addition to practising therapy, I have worked as a senior lecturer, research supervisor and course leader for over ten years on several London Counselling Psychology training programmes. I was also co-director of London Counselling Psychologists where I offered research and clinical supervision / consultation to both qualified and trainee therapists.
