Finding the right therapist to work with you can be a very
confusing and overwhelming process. In order to help you decide
whether I am the right therapist for you I have outlined my
qualifications and how I work here.
I am a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA), hold a MSc in
Psychotherapy (awaiting ratification from Middlesex University,
due Feb 19) and a Diploma in Transactional Analysis
Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I undertook my training at the
Metanoia Institute in London. In addition I hold a Diploma in
Clinical Supervision awarded by the Iron Mill College.
My core philosophy and training is in Relational Transactional
Analysis, however I work in an integrative way with my clients and
draw on a number of different theories and interventions to
support our work together. I take my lead from you in terms of
what you find helpful and prefer to work together to find a way that
supports growth and development specifically for you.
