About me

I have a Master of Arts, awarded with distinction, in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from the Minster Centre in London which is accredited by Middlesex University. I am registered with the UKCP (The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). Being registered with these organisations means that I work within Ethical Principles and adhere to Professional Occupational Standards. Therefore you can be sure that I practice therapy within a good professional framework. I attend workshops, groups, courses and regular clinical consultation for my continuing professional development.


I have been working as an Integrative Psychotherapist since 2004. I am experienced in short and long-term work. I have worked in the NHS, voluntary sector and private practice. Being employed in these different contexts means that I have worked with many different problems and issues, and people with a wide age range and from diverse backgrounds.

Previous experience

Prior to training as a therapist I was a musician, music teacher and workshop leader. I took my first degree and postgraduate studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I went on to do an MA in Music Education at the Institute of Education, University of London. My work in this context gave me the experience of working in relationship with many different people in varying situations and it was from here that my interest in being a therapist grew.
