I have a keen interest in and commitment to developing awareness in my own life. I value and practice meditation and am also a qualified and practicing yoga teacher. I bring to my work a deep understanding of the body and how to use this as a tool in exploring what may be happening beneath the level of awareness. I have undertaken on-going learning in the fields of trauma, interpersonal neurobiology, Gestalt interventions, Focussing, Embodied Relational Therapy and Mindfulness.
As well as regular individual supervision and my own personal therapy, I am part of an on-going continuing professional development group and a peer supervision group. My commitment to my own personal growth means that I am willing and able to meet whatever my clients might want to bring to therapy.
I have an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy and am an accredited member of United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also a member of the Association of Core Process Psychotherapists (ACPP). and of the Relational School of Psychotherapists.
I work in private practice and am also employed as a clinical supervisor for the domestic violence charity RISE and for the Therapy Works Psychotherapy Training in Pakistan. I also supervise individuals working in the fields of sexual violence support and safeguarding.
I am on the Faculty of the Karuna Institute Bristol teaching team.
I am fully insured and abide by the code of ethics of UKCP.
