I am both clinical and pastoral counselor, and a psychodynamic psychotherapist, and I work as a private practitioner, first responder and supervisor. I started training in 2006 at the Institute of Counselling in Glasgow specialising in Couples and Family issues, Grief and Bereavement, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorders. I then continued with courses related to Couples and Family issues and Traumas at TCCR, Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, followed by training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the University of Essex and pursued more studies at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. I completed a post-graduate psychotherapy degree at the psychiatric at Claude Bernard University Lyon 1 / CHU hospital Vinatier in Lyon and continued with residential and summer schools at TCCR to further her experience in relationships and families. In 2017 I was introduced to CFT by Chris Irons and throughout the years I have continued my training in CFT, which I now essentially apply in therapy.

I offer Compassion Focused Supervision, bringing compassion into the supervision process itself for an experiential and relational learning experience. With safeness and courage, we can develop your CFT or integrative practice, cultivate your 'compassionate therapist self', and support/empower you as a human being. Half my week is spent supporting colleagues with supervision and training, including supervision for the CFT Diploma. I'm an experienced CFT therapist, working with adults with Complex Trauma/Anxiety/Depression in private practice (formerly NHS IAPT/CMHT), and I also draw on ACT and EMDR. My training includes the CMF's supervisor training, as well as many CFT workshops and conferences including advanced clinical skills, chairwork, personal practice, PDs and attachment problems, FBRs and trauma. I have regular CFT supervision and supervision-of-supervision. I have a certificate in supervision from the University of Birmingham (2015) and am a BABCP Accredited Supervisor.
