I have an MA in Psychotherapy having completed four years of training in Mindfulness-Based Core Process Psychotherapy at the Karuna Institute. I am a candidate for accreditation with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I'm a registered member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
As part of my training, I have accumulated more than 500 hours of client work in agency settings and private practice. I engage in regular supervision and CPD to support my work.
My personal background is in mental health and for a number of years, I was involved in research into psychosocial development and psychological conditions that may disrupt or distort an individual's sense of self.
More recently I have become a university mental health specialist and developed a particular interest in working with neurodiversity. I also work as a doula to people at the end of their lives (sometimes referred to as soul-midwifery). I'm very interested in understanding more about how we can use contact with nature as a resource in therapy and will be further developing this aspect of how I work in the future.
