"Becoming "Awake" involves seeing our confusion more clearly". Rumi
I am passionate about the field of therapy. My passion and enthusiasm, I feel comes from my own personal experiences and witnessing the transformative power of this work. Time I spent in Asia, learning and practicing different methods and therapeutic approaches orientated in Eastern philosophy were growth promoting and I feel inform my practice in a positive way as I have a holistic view and appreciation of each individual. I am particularly interested in how the body can inform and guide therapeutic practice. I have trained with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute in London. I am currently undergoing Somatic Experience training in London and Edinburgh to further assist and deepen my knowledge and understanding of the role of the body and nervous system in understanding mental health and recovery.
I am committed to my ongoing personal and professional development and am constantly looking to evolve my practice and the effectiveness of my work. I am a registered member of the BACP, adhere to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and attend regular supervision sessions. I have experience working with trauma, addiction and other complex issues in both private practice and within organizations.
I have proven experience of working with client’s from wide demographic and cultural back grounds. I am creative empathetic and nonjudgmental, dedicated to ensuring ethical and reflective practice. I am collaborative, versatile and conscientious, committed to meeting the unique needs of every individual.
