About me

Initially I completed a 1-year Foundation Course in Humanistic Counselling. At the time I had already embarked on an Access Course at East Surrey College, Redhill with the intention of attending the University of Surrey to study Psychology as a mature student.

I completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Counselling in 2001. My degree course helped me to identify what area of Psychology I wanted to specialise in. I then embarked on a 4-year Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology at Regent’s College, London. Here I undertook to complete 450 hours institutionally supervised and placement supervised clinical training to meet the practical criteria of chartered psychologist status with The British Psychological Society.

I returned to education in 2006 to complete United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) accreditation. At the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, Waterloo I undertook a further 250hrs placement and institutionally supervised clinical hours and a further 2 years Post-Graduate study.

I have since become registered with the Health Professionals Council as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist in response to a government initiative to regulate the counselling and psychotherapeutic profession most recently. Additionally I have become an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBsS). I am a member of BACP.

I am a BUPA, AXA-PPP, AVIVA and PruHEALTH recognized Psychologist.

Additionally I am a RAPPS (BPS) accredited trainee clinical supervisor.

I belong to numerous professional bodies as a member and they keep me informed of up-to-date CPD and training events.
