My Training

I hold a BSc in Psychology from Manchester University, specialising in the psychology of love, social communication via the Internet, and work-related stress. During this time I also obtained training and experience of working with neurodivergence.

I am a UK accredited Gestalt Counsellor and trained at the Gestalt Centre in Old Street, London. Gestalt counselling focuses on how you feel, think or do things in the present moment. It holds the view that people are linked to and influenced by their environments, and that all people strive towards growth and balance in their lives. In my practice, I use a range of techniques that might include talking, writing, drawing, visualisations or movement. We will work together in a way that suits you best.

I have obtained additional training and experience in:

  • Anger, leading to violence, depression or lack of direction
  • Boarding School Survivors
  • Gender, sexuality and relationship diversity
  • Racial and cultural identity
  • Neurodivergence including ADHD, PDA, autism, dyslexia and giftedness
  • Women and mental health, including the impact and experience of menopause
  • Ways of working such as:
    • Email counselling
    • Online and telephone counselling
    • Outdoor/nature or ‘walk and talk’ therapy
    • Meditation, visualisation and mindfulness practices
    • Therapeutic writing such as journalling and freefall writing

I have previously worked as a trainer and facilitator around mental health issues.

I am a Reiki Master Level 3, trained in London (Levels 1 and 2) and Hong Kong (Level 3). I was attuned to Reiki Master level in Hong Kong by Pervin Clasper in Usui Shiki Ryoho, the Usui System of Natural Healing. My Reiki lineage is as follows:
