I am a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor who is a registered and fully accredited member of the BACP. This means that I abide by the ethical standards and code of practice of this peak professional body.
Having gained an honours degree in Psychology, my post graduate training as a therapist was based on an Integrative model of practice. This means that I am not tied to one model of analysis and my work is informed by a tapestry of different schools of thought.
This allows a flexible yet tailored approach that gets to the heart of the problem in a way that is meaningful to my clients and supports them in their everyday lives.
As well as engaging in regular continued professional development, I have completed additional specialist training as a qualified relationship therapist and have a particular passion for supporting couples to better understand their significant intimate relationships.
However, I also serve individual clients and my expertise in relational dynamics can help those who wish to explore the way they come into relationship with themselves and others in their world. This could include patterns that repeat themselves in intimate relationships or in wider networks of family and friends. It could also help understand the dynamics at play in the workplace.
I am also a fully trained and qualified supervisor supporting therapists and other care professionals to navigate and develop their working practice in the best service of their clients.
Prior to establishing my private practice Zoetix in 2012, I worked as part of a multi-disciplinary team in a private psychiatric hospital, supported delivery of EAP for organisations across a range of industries, worked in counselling agencies and GP services.
I have practiced in the UK and Australia, and as a person of mixed ethnicity, this international experience has enriched my work and brought me into connection with a wide variety of clients and a broad range of issues. It has honed a keen sense of the impact of change and the process of managing change, difference, and life transitions.
