Since qualifying in 1998 from the University of Cambridge, I have gained over 17 years clinical experience as counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor. My work is informed and inspired by psychodynamic and psychoanalytical theory and Jungian psychology, delivered in mindfulness based practice. I draw professionally from Emotion Based, Solution Focused and Cognitive Behavioural therapeutic models. Further training and experience includes trauma, dissociation and psychosis, OCD, workplace dynamics, couple and family therapy.
I am a senior accredited member of BACP and UKRCP registered. My employment experience is with NHS primary care GP surgeries, secondary schools and as an approved provider for BUPA, Cigna, AVIVA and EAP (Employment Assisted Programmes). Voluntary organisations include Centre 33 and The Miscarriage Association, encompassing the provision of specialist courses for Midwives at Rosie Maternity Hospital, Cambridge. My private practice is from my office in the centre of Cambridge City and Swaffham Prior.
As an integrative Supervisor, I work individually and in groups with therapists of various levels of training, experience and orientation. I designed and developed and supervised a successful placement programme for trainee counsellors and psychotherapists. I am facilitator of professional development groups.
