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, I am part of an on-going continuing professional development group and a peer supervision 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 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 am fully insured and abide by the code of ethics of UKCP.
