I’m here to offer my clients a welcoming and secure space where they can feel free to talk. It’s very important to me that we build a strong trusting alliance, so you feel safe to open up, as well as willing and able to consider making real changes.
Earning the right to practice as a counselling psychologist and psychotherapist requires a great deal of self-analysis, along with solid ongoing professional training. I do both on a continuous basis.
My main teacher has been my attachment traumatic wound - getting to know it, taking care of it, with patience, awareness and compassion, have deeply helped me understand a lot about complex relational trauma and what trauma does to the body, heart and mind.
How did I get here?
Before training to become a psychologist and psychotherapist, I worked in banking services and life insurance. I was a trainer and managed various projects.
I was also the CEO of a charity for children diagnosed with critical illnesses. The therapeutic relationships I built with children and their parents helped me develop a great sense of patience, perseverance and belief in the human capacity to heal.
Now I’m a chartered psychologist, also qualified in Jungian psycho-dynamic counselling and psychotherapy working with individuals and couples. For couples, I’m a Certified therapist in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT).
Ongoing training means I can deliver the best in professional practice
On a personal level I’m immersed in my own therapy, as well as doing continual professional development.
