ABOUT

BPC, BACP, FPC Registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapist 

HCPC, BAAT Registered Art Psychotherapist

I trained at Goldsmiths, University of London where I gained an MA in art psychotherapy. I have been working as an art psychotherapist for 13 years, and have experience working with adults and children in educational, psychiatric and third sector settings.

Having worked extensively as an art psychotherapist with both adults and children, I completed the psychodynamic psychotherapy qualification at WPF, one of the UK’s leading training and clinical organisations for psychotherapy, validated by the University of Roehampton. I am a professional member of HCPC, BACP, BAAT, BPC and FPC and adhere to their code of ethics and working practice. I have worked within the NHS, community and agency settings as well as in private practice. 

It is a privilege to share in the journey of therapeutic exploration. I enjoy providing the space to find potential of what you might discover, in a completely different way through the use of art-making.

I work from consulting rooms located in SW and central London, online and at various organisations throughout London.
