I originally trained as a psychotherapist with the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, and some years later completed a doctoral programme in counselling psychology with Middlesex University. Psychotherapy and counselling psychology complement each other, and enable me to provide an integrative approach to therapy tailored to each client’s individual needs. I am also a fully trained clinical hypnotherapist.
Although I make reference (home page and above) to being an integrative practitioner, meaning that I utilise learning from each of the main schools of psychotherapy (Humanistic, Psychoanalytic, Cognitive, Behavioural & Gestalt) it is the Humanistic school that I principally draw upon, and, within this school, the existential approach that I most widely apply.
I would always advise that clients seeking therapy choose appropriately qualified practitioners. I am a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) registered psychotherapist, a British Psychological Society (BPS) registered chartered psychologist, and a member of the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).
