MSc Integrative Psychotherapist
I began my UKCP accredited MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy in 2013 and since 2015, I have worked with a wide range of presentations including trauma, childhood abuse/neglect including sexual abuse, physical abuse and emotional/psychological abuse/neglect. After some years here I went on to working with clients who had experienced domestic abuse for three years and most recently, I worked for the NHS as a Locum Psychological Therapist which I did for over six months, including during some of the lockdown period.
I am now working between an Employee Assistance Programme and my private practice which is a great balance.
I have enjoyed working on these various contracts where I have gained considerable experience in working with the following:
- Abuse (emotional, physical, sexual)
- BAME cultural struggles
- Body dysmorphia
- Domestic abuse
- Eating disorders
- Gender Identity
- Intrusive thoughts
- Personal development
- Self harm
- Trauma (childhood and adulthood)
- Work and career issues and much more.
In my personal time I enjoy taking walks with nature, particularly where there are trees, streams, ponds or rivers and animals. I also enjoy meditating and singing.
I take my professional development seriously and continue to attend training workshops and events, with a particular interest in the impact of trauma on human development.
A therapist’s personal well-being impacts their work in many ways and so I believe it to be my ethical duty to encourage my self care for myself as well as for my clients.
