I'm an accredited member of the National Counselling Society, which holds a register of therapists accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, a national regulatory body for healthcare professionals in the UK. I also have an enhanced DBS certificate.
I trained at King's College London University and at
The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies London.
I hold an BA (Hons) in Philosophy, a Certificate in Counselling
and three postgraduate diplomas:
a Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural
Counselling and Psychotherapy, and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative
Counselling and Psychotherapy.
The types of cognitive behavioural
counselling and psychotherapy
that I specialise in
are: Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT),
Cognitive Therapy (CT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCBT).
I work by integrating these approaches in ways that will suit your
individual needs and preferences.
The process of counselling and psychotherapy
I will first explore with you the past and present events causing
the problem you are experiencing, how you have been affected by those events
and the changes you would
like to make.
As our thoughts, feelings and actions are connected and affect each other,
we will look at how the problem
affects your thinking (your conscious and unconscious thought patterns and processes),
your actions (what you feel like doing and what you actually do or avoid doing),
your emotions (for example, feelings of stress, anxiety, depression or anger)
and how you are physically affected.
We will then explore different ways of approaching the problem by focusing
on how you can start to think about the problem differently and things you can do
differently that will help change the way you feel and
so change how you respond to the problem.
I will guide you through the process of making these changes until
you are seeing consistent progress and are able to remain resilient when
placed in difficult or challenging situations. We will also ensure that
you have a plan in place to deal with any future challenges.
