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 a also a member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling FPC, the professional body of WPF therapy in London Bridge where I trained. I’m an accredited practioner 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. I currently work at the Rock Clinic in Brighton (a charity that offers low cost therapy to the community) and in London at a practice I co founded.
Therapeutically, I am particularly interested in addiction and it’s 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 also have a long term interest in mindfulness which now has a growing research base in treatment for anxiety and depression. While my main way of working is psychodynamic, I practise using a mindfulness informed approach.
