As a UKCP registered clinical psychotherapist, I am governed by the Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such, I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Areas of Specialism
I have a particular interest in attachment theory, neuroscience, relational psychotherapy and mindfulness and their capacity, when tailored to individual needs within the therapeutic relationship, to treat a range of difficulties. Within the area of attachment I am especially interested in the concept of an internal secure base, its impact on mental well-being and the possibilities for acquiring this through therapy. The research dissertation for my masters degree studied the experience of an internal secure base developed in therapy.
I believe that in developing a genuine, secure, relationship together in therapy it is possible to find a way forward that is right for you as a unique person with your own individual experiences, beliefs and needs.
