I currently work exclusively online as of March 2020. I love working online and the opportunity it gives us to connect during times of isolation and anxiety. I find it as effectiveand sometimes even more effective, than therapy in person.
I joined The Integrated Practice at 127 Harley Street, London in 2018 and for two years enjoyed offering in person appointments there and in my Mayfair clinic.
Between 2015 and 2017, I worked exclusively online whilst living in Tel Aviv, Copenhagen and Paris.
Prior to 2015 I had a full-time private practice in Paris, France for four years. I maintain my professional network there and continue to work with clients in person at my courtyard office in rue du Théâtre when I visit.
Before moving to France, I had a small practice in London and worked as a counsellor and then the manager at The Kairos Aftercare Programme, a charity in South London which supports vulnerable people in their recovery from addictive disorders.
I began my career in the field in 2007 as a peer support volunteer at PROMIS Treatment Centre in London, accompanying patients to 12 step meetings and later assisting therapists in process groups as a co-facilitator. I completed my training placement at The Priory Hospital North London in 2008 whilst obtaining my Master’s degree at London South Bank University.
I add “PGDip, MSc” after my name because I have completed a postgraduate diploma and a Master’s degree. The academic courses I took to obtain these qualifications are:
Masters of Science in Addiction Psychology & Counselling (London South Bank University) 2009-2010
Post Graduate Diploma in Addiction Counselling (London South Bank University) 2008-2009
Post Graduate Certificate in Addiction Studies (London South Bank University) 2007-2008
My academic research was focused on the relationship between menstrual phases and addictive behaviours. I remain committed to researching this topic and supporting people with the behavioural and emotional challenges associated with Premenstrual Syndrome and Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder.
I have completed further training courses and seminars on the following:
Person-centred counselling, Social Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, Transactional Analysis, Existential Therapy, Psychosynthesis, Drama Therapy, Music Meditation, Mindfulness, Trauma, Working with Ex-Servicemen, Group Therapy, Telephone Counselling, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Online Counselling and Psychotherapy
Membership of Professional Organisation
