I am an experienced integrative therapist. I use a range of approaches including person-centred (humanist) counselling, cognitive and behavioural tools and EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing).
I am particularly interested in treating trauma, dissociation, PTSD, anxiety and phobias using EMDR and a range of approaches that I integrate into this work. For more information on EMDR see EMDR UK.
Areas of experience
I trained in counselling and psychotherapy at the University of East London (UEL) BACP accredited course and completed my counselling Diploma in 2006. I have also completed a full training in (EMDR) Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing accredited by the EMDR Europe Association. For more information on EDMR – a treatment for trauma and PTSD – please see EMDR UK & Ireland.
Code of Ethics
I work with a strict code of ethics set by the BACP.
I see clients in my private practice in Stoke Newington, London N16 and online (Skype counselling).
I also see clients at iCope, the Camden and Islington Psychological Therapies Service which is part of the NHS improving access to psychological therapies service or IAPT.
