ABOUT ME

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 and a Diploma in Transactional Analysis

Psychotherapeutic Counselling awarded by the

Metanoia Institute in London.  I also 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 am specialised in working with

psychological trauma and we will shape our work together to

create safety and emotional regulation before exploring the things you choose to bring to therapy.

I have experience in working in charitable organisations and Higher Education establishments as a trauma counsellor, clinical supervisor and as a lecturer teaching clinical skills and how to work safely wit trauma.
