CURRENTLY TAKING NO NEW REFERRALS
I am trained as an integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I have a postgraduate qualification in Women's Studies.
From working in Central London in my previous career as a Police Officer, and also my studies, I have a broad and in depth knowledge of difference and diversity.
I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship is key to promoting change, and I value each client as an individual. I work in a very relational way.
I have extensive experience of working with the LGBTQ+ Community.
I understand the spectrums regarding identity, gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (GSRD).
I am a photographer with a keen interest in creativity and mental health. I use creativity in my work, if I deem it to be appropriate.
From having to work online in 2021, I have worked with clients from around the world. I have an understanding of living in a different country, having just returned to the UK after 6 years of living abroad.
My particular area of interest is in Adult ADHD and gender and sexual identity (see separate section for more information).
Theory & Practice
I have a BA (honours) in Counselling Studies. My degree focused on integrative counselling and psychotherapy theory and practice.
My theoretical interests developed in the humanistic approach, and in particular existentialism.
Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
I developed my humanistic theory and practice by completing one year of a post graduate degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy in York before transferring to a 2 year diploma in Leeds.
Post Graduate Degree in Women´s Studies
I completed a 2 year post graduate multidisciplinary degree at the University of York. My main areas of research were related to 'women, bipolar and creativity', and 'contemporary girl culture'.
Currently Studying Post Graduate Degree
I am currently developing my interest in Adult ADHD and Existential Psychotherapy.
I am studying for a Post Graduate degree at the NSPC, Existential Academy in London.
