About Relationships In Mind
SENIOR PSYCHOLOGIST LONDON
I am an experienced HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist and BPS Chartered Psychologist offering private counselling & relationship counselling, face to face and online at 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. I am committed to offering therapy which is accessible to people who have experienced trauma, members of the LGBTQA+ community, across the neurodiversity spectrum.
In addition to my doctoral training in counselling psychology, I hold a number of postgraduate qualifications:
– a certificate in the psychoanalytic understanding and treatment of trauma (the Tavistock & Portman NHS Trust)
– a masters in the theory of psychoanalysis (University College London)
– a masters in work psychology (University of East London)
– Part 1 in EMDR (Sandi Richman training)
Please read below to learn how I work.
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
My usual way of working is based on the frameworks of psychoanalysis and attachment theory. I am currently completing a further 3-year training in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). ISTDP is an application of psychoanalysis that has a significant and growing evidence-base for the treatment of many problems.
