I am a qualified counsellor with a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and a qualification in Mindfulness-Based Approaches. I’m a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to its ethical and professional code.
As an integrative counsellor and coach, I bring a dynamic and personalized approach to my practice, ensuring that each individual receives the therapy that best suits their needs. I understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and I embrace a range of techniques and tools to tailor your therapy sessions.
I attend monthly supervision with experienced Person-Centred practitioners. I continue professional development through frequent courses, workshops, and meditation retreats that deepen my core training and expand my experience and specialisms.
Something more about me….
Before training as a therapist, I had a career as a nurse and worked for many years in the City of London as a scientist. I’ve run my own business, and worked in corporate, private and voluntary organisations. My other experiences include being a mother, wife, yoga teacher, mentor, life coach and psychotherapist. And yes, I understand what it’s like to feel under pressure or be pulled in different directions. All of the above experiences provided me with beneficial lessons.
My journey of self-exploration grew from a sense of discontent with how I was responding to my life – a recognition that I was unhappy. Inspired by the patience and kindness of therapists, meditation and yoga teachers who helped me through my emotional pain, I decided to pursue a career in psychotherapy.
I have taught mindfulness, yoga, and meditation and have practised them for over twenty years. Nature and creativity are essential parts of my life. I spend my free time in forests and mountains.
