My professional experience:
I completed my qualification in 2010 and have subsequently worked in a number of clinical settings including community-based mental health and inpatient services in general psychiatry, eating disorders as well as with the Canadian military.
Previously, I have worked on both the General Psychiatry and Eating Disorder inpatient units at Nightingale Hospital in addition to seeing clients for individual therapy.
Most recently, I worked with an NHS specialist Eating Disorder Outpatient service providing individual therapy.
My personal statement:
As a counselling psychologist I practice an integrative approach having received training in cognitive behavioural therapy and relational approaches to counselling.
I am also interested in mindfulness-based and compassion practices and utilise them in my work with clients. I have experience working with a wide range of presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, grief/bereavement and eating disorders as well as working with survivors of abuse.
As a therapist I am committed to developing a safe and collaborative working relationship with clients and hope to walk alongside them as they work to create meaningful change in their lives.
