I am a registered member of the BACP and an insured psychotherapist. I work in a NHS London hospital in secondary care, and also at a highly specialised Clinic for Dissociative Disorders; as both a psychotherapist and support therapist. I am also a guest lecturer at Tavistock and Portman. I have private practice offices in Soho and Islington.
I write regularly on mental health for Vogue, Refinery29, Modern Matters to name a few. I also consult for film and scripts for some large TV companies and production houses.
My main training was at Regent’s University and The University of Liverpool. I have also attended courses at The Bowlby Centre and the International Society for Trauma and Dissociation. I am committed to on going training and attend various courses and professional development seminars. I am an active member of the Society for Existential Analysis. I also hold a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from University of Liverpool.
My particular area of interest is Dissociative Identity Disorder, and working with complex trauma. My current research, being undertaken at Regents University, is exploring a psychotherapists first encounter with a D.I.D client, which aims to add to the discussion and thought around this often under researched phenomena.
Below are some typical areas that I work with in private practice. I see a breadth of clients, from varying backgrounds.
depression, anxiety and stress
grief, loss and bereavement
trauma, neglect, deprivation, physical sexual and mental abuse
addictions (food, drugs, alcohol, sex and gambling etc.)
identity, meaning and purpose
relationship and interpersonal issues
disorders (Dissociative identity disorder, dissociative disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders)
