My approach

Background

I have a background of 14 years in the voluntary sector working in a variety of mentoring and befriending projects as a caseworker, trainer, and supervisor.  My core training at the Chiron Centre for Body Psychotherapy emphasised the human potential of every individual to live in an embodied relational way.  It gave me a broad base, integrating ideas across the therapeutic spectrum from Humanistic person-centred to Psychodynamic ways of working.

After graduating from Chiron in 2007 I took a placement as an Honorary Psychotherapist in the Psychodynamic Psychotherapy department of the East London NHS Foundation Trust where I worked until 2014.  Since then I have pursued a growing interest in psychoanalysis.  I am currently engaged in a formal course of study at the British Psychoanalytic Association.
