My professional experience:
After working for Corporate in NYC in Finance and Advertising for 10 years, I re-trained and obtained my Master degree (with Distinction) in London at NSPC in 2004. I follow the UKCP code of Ethics.
As a qualified psychotherapist and after 12 years working with Expats in Central London, I have developed a strong experience and expertise in relationship difficulties, in career counseling and student counseling. Feelings and issues of anxiety, depression, low self -esteem, PTSD, bullying, multicultural and diversity are very familiar in my work.
I like to help my clients get a better self-understanding through an increased self-awareness and its resulting insights, and bring a change of perspectives as well as a sense of well being.
My personal statement:
I believe that behind qualifications, therapy is essentially a safe and contained place- sheltered away from the usual pressures and expectations- where you can be heard in a meaningful way.
It helps you make sense of feelings and thoughts that can be experienced as, confusing, dis- empowering and overwhelming! We will unpack them together and try to get some meaning and sense out of them. It is confidential and it is a collaboration.
I enjoy work with young adults, women dilemmas (work/life balance, fertility, motherhood) and issues that come under the theme of Diversity.
Another passion of mine is food and our relationship to it.
