We play an active part during sessions; we intervene, we reflect, we share theories and perspective, we ask questions and explore ideas. Our way of working is relational, meaning it’s collaborative and dynamic.
We draw upon many different therapeutic approaches, including EMDR psychodynamic, behavioural, gestalt, systemic, and other humanistic and client-centred philosophies. This blended approach ensures we can address situations in a wholesome way.
I have 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist and have always had an interest in psychology with specific interests in complex and developmental trauma and PTSD, and addiction.
Prior to running my successful Private Practice, I worked with the Priory Group from 2009, appointed Addiction Programme Manager in 2014 and was a leading figure in the Priory addictions community and guided the success of the Priory Hospital Woking addictions programme until handing over this role in November 2020. I continue to support Priory offering therapy at their Woking site and online through Priory Connect. I am also a member of the team at Portobello Behavioural Health.
I am regularly called upon by the media to offer an opinion, contributing to both national and international press titles including; The Times, BBC, The Express, The Daily Mail, The Huffington Post and The New York Times, Contributions also include; quotes, chairing podcasts, blogs and views on prominent issues used by a number of websites and social media platforms
My therapy is also informed by 25 years of experience in the business travel industry. I started my travel career with British Airways, behind the scenes, not crew. This led to a long-term career with Hogg Robinson Business Travel International acting as a Business Analyst and Account Manager, for the multi-million pound travel budgets for three of the top ten clients for HRBTI.
I am accredited as an advanced practitioner with the Addiction Professionals (AP) and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) as well as a registered member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
As a member of these organisations, I adhere to their ethical framework. This includes frequent Clinical Supervision and keeping up to date through training and Continuous Personal Development (CPD).
In recent years I have invested in PostGrad training with NAOS Institute, Bath University and I am currently undertaking a Psychology MSc.
