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 supervision, I am part of an on-going continuing professional development group.
I have an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy and am an accredited member of United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am also a registered member of the British Association of Counseling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the Association of Core Process Psychotherapists (ACPP). I am also a member of the Relational School of Psychotherapists.
As well as working in Private Practice I am also employed as a Clinical Supervisor for the Domestic Violence Charity, RISE.
I am fully insured and abide by the code of ethics of UKCP and BACP.
