Ongoing Professional Training

I am committed to the highest professional standards. Therefore as well as being a fully qualified Counsellor, I am also continuing my training to the level of Psychotherapist, completing in 2021.

Working with a 'Psychotherapist in Training' benefits clients with;

  • High-level support that grows with the therapeutic relationship

  • Skilled therapy at a lower cost. 


Therapy Under Supervision

I am supervised at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. I hold trainee membership with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP) and subscribe to the  UKCP Code of Ethics for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. 


All counsellors and psychotherapists receive supervision but because I am in training, my sessions are recorded and a small portion transcribed by myself  then presented to my supervision group.  


This extra layer of supervision ensures that I am providing the absolute best support and service for you.

Names and any identifying factors are changed and I receive feedback and guidance on my contribution in the sessions.
