Professional Training Qualifications and Memberships
BA(Hons) English Literature, MA Psychoanalytic Studies
I trained and worked for many years in the field of education - both mainstream and special education - and have worked with and taught children, adolescents as well as adults.
Subsequently, I trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist at The Guild of Psychotherapists following on from a psychodynamic counselling training at WPF therapy, which is recognised as a leading training and therapy organisation in the UK. Both these organisations are bound by a code of ethics. They are both pluralistic trainings which mean that they do not adhere to just one school of thought. Consequently, I do not stick to any one theory and work flexibly according to your needs. I continued in further training as a supervisor and am now a training supervisor and psychotherapist at Wpf. In addition, I am a professional member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and my training is accredited by both the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy(UKCP) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) as well as listed in the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). http://www.bacp.co.uk/
