I work as Psychological Therapist for the Refugee Council UK. I am currently involved in the project 'Transforming Therapy' in between London and Birmingham.
I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered counsellor and I am an approved counsellor with Anxiety UK.
I hold a PgDip in Psychoanalysis for Children, Young People and Families from the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and I a Diploma in Gestalt Counselling.
I have trained in Solution Focussed Therapy and completed courses in Trauma, Sexual and Emotional Abuse and Stress Management.
I hold an MPhil in Philosophical Studies from King's College London, I have studied and taught philosophy for most of my life.
Gestalt, in a nutshell, is a dialogic and relational approach. This means that I believe in and focus on the relationship and the honest dialogue between client and counsellor.
I am also trained in the psychoanalytic approach. in this approach I value the notions that it is important to see the old patterns which have their origins in early childhood and early relationships to better understand some deep and unconscious mechanisms.
