I am a Counselling Psychologist in doctoral training at the University of Roehampton (awaiting viva). Previous to this I completed a BSc (Hons.) in Psychology, a COSCA Counselling Skill Certificate and a Postgraduate Diploma in Pluralistic Counselling. I am currently registered with the BACP as a counsellor.
I have worked and trained extensively within a wide range of settings, including universities, research centres, charities and cancer care, as well as NHS primary care and NHS secondary care. Within these settings I have worked with a multitude of issues and presenting difficulties, including working within specialised services for complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, and refugee support.
My doctoral research is focused on the relationship people have with a diagnosis of “chronic depression”, and I am particularly interested in issues surrounding pathologization of suffering and trauma.
I also have extensive private practice experience with concerns surrounding sexuality and sexual function, gender identity, relationship identity (including ethical non-monogamy variations), as well as a myriad of other themes that may lead to a person or a couple wanting to seek out therapeutic support or guidance.
