MBACP, BSc. (Hons) Psychology
Prior to studying for an undergraduate degree in Psychology, I worked as a Private Banker for high-net-worth international clients, ran a small commercial real estate firm in Manhattan and later, assisted a high-profile fashion family.
My MA studies in Psychotherapy provided me with opportunities to focus in specialist areas such as Bereavement. Learning how loss impacts all of us has taught me, among other things, to understand ‘loss’ as a critical but natural component of life.
Though we must all face it, and each of us moves through our mourning process differently, surviving ‘loss’ means moving through change for every human. This change can be a new opportunity, but it requires learning and often a new skillset.
At the Neuro Rehabilitaion Unit at the National Hospital, I worked with patients and their families within a model of therapy referred to as Problem Solving Neuropsychotherapy. This model of therapy allowed me to help those affected by brain injury or illness with a neurological component to adapt to their new circumstances, in many cases a loss of their former lives, and find a way forward - often by facing fears and clarifying goals.
Confronting change and understanding what to do next is fundamental to my current work, helping women navigate major life changes, such as divorce, widowhood, empty-nesting, returning to work, or assimilating a blended family through re-marriage. When I help a woman understand her loss and change in life and also validate the conflicting range of emotions coming with it, I give space for her healing to begin. At the same time, by helping her take smart, practical steps to build a new life, we ensure her recovery. I provide guidance during a woman’s re-discovery of herself – her possible choices and her power to move through and forward.
HOW I WORK
As an integrative, psychodynamic psychotherapist I offer my clients a holistic and uniquely personal approach specific to the needs of the individual from a range of therapeutic principles. I provide a safe, confidential environment in which we work together, through connection and commitment, towards navigating and understanding life’s challenges with a view to self-renewal and greater well-being. I provide sessions tailored to the needs of the client in short-term focused, goal-oriented therapy as well as long term or open-ended requirements.
I commenced my study for the MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy alongside Mark Boyden and Daniel Burbidge and am currently trained to advanced diploma level.
As well as face-to-face sessions I provide Skype Therapy and/or telephone sessions tailored to accommodate the needs of busy professionals or people from different time zones.
