I am a professional counsellor accredited by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I work in a humanistic and relational style drawing on the therapeutic conditions initially described in Carl Rogers’ Person Centred Therapy, coupled with the principles of Mindfulness. It is my experience that this combination builds up a powerful and synergistic trio of greater self-awareness, greater self-compassion, and greater resilience. In essence, this approach is based on the premise that when offered appropriate support and insight, the solution to many of the problems that we struggle with can be found within ourselves.
I am a graduate of Cambridge University and hold counselling qualifications from the universities of Oxford and Warwick. Having taught psychology for many years, and being married to a professor of finance – who is also a partner in a successful consulting company – I have an enhanced appreciation of many of the issues that face those who hold demanding and responsible professional roles in a period of increasing uncertainty.
