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.
I have experience in working with various settings including addictions recovery, welfare to work – public sector, charity sector and within the NHS as an IAPT Counsellor and Enhanced Primary Care as a Trauma Psychotherapist.
I am currently enjoying a balance of employment and self employment (contracted)/private practice.
I have gained considerable experience in working with the following but not restricted to:
- BAME cultures
- Body dysmorphia
- Bullying at work
- Domestic abuse
- Eating disorders
- Family struggles
- Gender Identity
- Higher education stress
- Intrusive thoughts
- Personal development
- Rape and sexual abuse
- Relationship struggles
- Self harm
- Trauma (childhood and adulthood)
- Work-life balance struggles
- Work stress 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 journaling and singing.
I take my professional development seriously and continue to attend training workshops & events and contributing to the field of psychotherapy.
Below is a link which I have written regarding BAME clients and their experience within mental health care:
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.
