Originally from South Africa, I have been living in the UK for more than 15 years.
I have been practising as a counsellor since 2012.
Before working as a counsellor, I worked in IT and understand the pressures of working in a corporate environment and the related issues resulting in stress, performance anxiety and in personal life.
My psychotherapeutic counselling training lasted four years and I trained at the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, London. I hold a Clinical Postgraduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling and a Diploma in Transactional Analysis, Middlesex University, London.
I work with Duty to Care providing psychotherapeutic support for NHS healthcare professionals, and with Strategic Wellbeing providing counselling services to corporate organisations. I have previously worked with clients at the Metanoia Counselling Psychotherapy Service (MCPS) and Wimbledon Guild Counselling Service (WGCS). I have experience working at an NHS Psychiatric Hospital (acute wards) as part of a multidisciplinary team providing complex care.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), registration number 376997, the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA), the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA) the Metanoia Institute.
I attend regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops to keep my skills and knowledge up-to-date.
I am committed to my own personal development.
I meet regularly with a clinical supervisor to support my work.
