I am an experienced Counselling Psychologist offering private counselling, relationship counselling, & EMDR face to face and online in Earls Court, Kensington.
Before founding Relationships in Mind back in 2014, I had already been working in the NHS for a number of years with the full spectrum of needs in primary, secondary and tertiary care settings with both outpatients and inpatients, individuals, groups, and families.
I have always wanted to create a safe space where individuals and couples could have the time to think about themselves in depth and create more mindful connections.
In addition to my doctoral training, I hold a number of post graduate qualifications including a certificate in EMDR, a masters in the theory of psychoanalysis, and a masters in work psychology.
I am registered as a Counselling Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the organisation that regulates psychology in the UK. I am also chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS), which is the gold standard of practice for British psychologists. I abide by the code of ethics and standards of practice of both organisations. You can locate my registration details by clicking on the above links.
I have been trained and practised in all three dominant therapy models:
- Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) + Mindfulness
I tailor individual therapy to each client and their needs although psychoanalysis and attachment theory constitute the bedrock of my thinking. Psychological research strongly suggests that it is the quality of the therapeutic relationship that is more important than a therapy model when it comes to positive outcomes for clients.
I also have a qualification in Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) which is procedure that can often be integrated in other therapeutic frameworks.
