My Qualifications and Experience


I am an accredited psychotherapist with UKCP (my reg No is: 6158334) and I have many years of post-qualification experience


Here are the details and I hope that they are helpful:


* What it means to be Accredited with UKCP

To help the public know who they can trust, UKCP set high standards for psychotherapists to be trained and experienced. They give their seal of approval to those psychotherapists who meet their standards by registering them as UKCP practitioners. I received by UKCP registration (approval) in 2006


* Training in Oxford

I attended training at the Oxford School of Psychodrama and Integrative Psychotherapy.  My trainers were Peter Haworth and Susie Taylor who are well-known and respected. I started training in 1998 and most of it was completed by 2003. I still had to run a weekly therapy group and write my dissertation and this was achieved by 2006


* Training practice in the NHS

My training involved facilitating a weekly therapy group for 3 years with real patients to prove that I could professionally handle the issues that arise. I had an honorary contract at an NHS hospital (Mile End Hospital, London) where I ran a weekly group for out-patients. This included assessing patients as well as facilitating the group of 5-6 members


* Extensive Experience

From 2006 onwards, I have provided both individual and group therapy.

Since 2009, I have facilitated a therapy and support group for Mind in Camden. This group has benefitted many people and I continue to run it every week. The group runs online using Zoom.

From 2009-2018, I provided day workshops for groups of people to experience therapy. They were called 'Saturday Psychodrama' and I ran 65 workshops during 9 years. The workshops suited people who wanted to experience in-depth therapy at first hand (until Covid came along).
