About Me

I am a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist, EFT Supervisor and EMDR Therapist working with couples, individuals and parents.

Currently, I am continuing my professional development by studying for MSc in Attachment Studies at Roehampton University.

My private practice is based in Newbury and I provide easily accessible online therapy. I am also an EFT Supervisor and EMDR Therapist, and I gained accreditation with BACP in 2018. I continue to learn and keep my skills fresh through continued professional development courses. This year I have focused on developing my knowledge in modern attachment theory, which beautifully compliments my work with couples, families and supervisees. I also enjoy training other therapists to become better couples therapists in my Deliberate Practice inspired courses. For the past four years, I was a Special Events Co-coordinator for the British EFT Centre and currently I am an Auditor for the Polish EFT Association.

Every now and then I share therapeutic resources on my Facebook Page. Please have a look and I hope you can find something inspiring for yourself.

My Approach

My approach to therapy is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples. After further advanced training, I bring to my counselling practice EMDR trauma therapy techniques, which have been validated by an extensive body of research proving their effectiveness.

Originally I trained in Integrative Humanistic Counselling at the Iron Mill College in Exeter. Before starting the private practice in Newbury I gained valuable experience in two community clinics in London, where I developed skills for both an open-ended, longer form of therapy and focused, short-time counselling.

I also worked with university students, primary school children and people in the midst of a suicidal crisis at the Suicidal Respite Centre in London. As a result, I am experienced in seeing a great variety of clients presenting a wide range of issues for either 6 to 12 sessions or well over a year.

At the heart of my practice is to provide you with safe, confidential and ethical therapy based on respect, empathy and trust.

I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework - a guideline for practitioners which ties in with my personal code of ethics.
