ABOUT THE THERAPIST
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist (AFBPsS), accredited with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the UK statutory regulation body, Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I have been employed by the NHS in Primary Care for many years in a Community Mental Health Centre and GP surgeries, and also have experience working in other settings including a university, a hospital renal unit and a young people's service.
I practise an integrative approach, drawing on Psychodynamic, Systemic and Cognitive Behavioural models of therapy. I have specialised in Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and work as a Senior IPT practitioner.
I trained in online counselling with Online Counselling and Training Services (OCST) and am a member of The Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).
I am listed in the BPS Register of Psychologists and in the ACTO directory of online counsellors.
I work within the BACP ethical guidelines for online counselling.
