Professional Background

Having trained over a period of 5 years (2015-2020) with the Karuna Institute, I am a UKCP-accredited Core Process Psychotherapist. As a UKCP therapist, I observe and abide by the UKCP Code of Ethics

In addition to more recent training, I have an MA (Hons.) in Psychology from The University of Edinburgh. I have been working within Psychology, group work and Talking Therapies throughout my working life, both within the NHS and third sector organisations. Over the years, I have worked within the realms of refugee rights, community action, personality disorder treatment programs as well as specialising in work within marginalised communities. I have significant experience in group work, leading groups towards healthier, safer spaces through which we may get to know ourselves and each other better. 

I also work as a Lecturer and Course Tutor on the BA (Hons.) degree in Integrative Counselling at Iron Mill College in Exeter. I am a marker and advisor for Karuna MA-level dissertations. 

My Intention

Through my own experiences, I have come to be hugely interested in re-instating the support and guidance we crave in the midst of difficulty. I am committed to supporting others as they learn to 'stand by' their experience, becoming more familiar with their own goodness and strength. 

As a member of PCSR (Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility), I am interested in the contribution psychotherapy makes on a wider, societal level. This is an organisation placing counselling and psychotherapy in a social, political, ecological,and economic context.

I have a deep appreciation for the natural world as well as an intense curiosity about belonging. I am interested in the ways in which we come to know ourselves, how we connect with others and the creation of spaces in which we can feel safe. Above all, my intention is to work in a way that offers service to those in need of space, reflection and exploration.
