After working for 15 years in the field of ergonomics & work psychology, in both academic and corporate IT settings, I felt called to retrain as a psychotherapist. I studied psychotherapy and counselling at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London. This is an in-depth 4-year integrative, transpersonal course, requiring 600 hours of client work.
I have continued to study and experience many psychotherapy approaches and tools, particularly stemming from the field of neuroscience, and am passionate about learning and self-development. I have also been drawn to energy psychology and healing approaches, leading to my qualifications in EFT & Matrix Reimprinting, Meta-Health and Meta-Kinetics. All of the approaches and tools that I use are ones that I have found effective for my clients and personally on my own healing journey, so I have a deep experiential understanding of what the therapy process entails.
I combine a scientific background and logical approach with an intuitive, energy-informed way of working and continue to develop and integrate these different approaches into the way that I work.
