Clinical experienceI am a Chartered Psychologist, registered with the British Psychological Society, an Accredited Psychotherapist registered with British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, an EMDR Therapist, and a Clinical Supervisor on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors held by the British Psychological Society.
In my Private Practice, I provide Clinical and Research Supervision to practitioners across the helping professions, and direct clinical work with adults in near Ashford in Kent. I see adults for EMDR and long-term psychotherapy either face to face or on Zoom in my consulting room, and also out in nature. Click here to learn more about our locations.
I work as a Senior Lecturer, on the P.Dip/MA Integrative Psychotherapy programme training and supervising psychotherapists and research in applied psychology at the University of East London.
I run a multidisciplinary psychotherapeutic complex trauma service for looked-after children and the professionals who support their care in Medway. I lead a team of psychotherapists working with specialist foster carers, social workers, education coordinators, and fostering advisors, and Children and Young People with complex developmental trauma.
I have worked with adults, young people, families, and professionals, in a variety of organisations, as well as private practice, and I have led and supervised a network of coaches in Whitehall.
Continuing professional developmentMy recent trainings and professional development courses include Vipassana, Couples Therapy, Trauma Release, Safeguarding and Child Protection, Holotropics, Online EMDR, Brief Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Motivational Interviewing, Supporting Couples as Parents, Autogenic Training, MIND Suicide Prevention training, Blended Learning and Innovative Educator training, and CBT-i training.
However I have learned, and continue to learn the most valuable lessons from my clients, trainees, supervisees and colleagues. Not least, I continue to marvel at the extraordinary ways people find to adapt, survive, connect, explore, and with the right support, heal, grow, fly and create meaning and purpose in their lives. This is what Nimbus Psychotherapeutic Consultancy is all about – the double meaning of Nimbus – a jagged dark rain or snow cloud, and the illumination around a sacred, venerated or sacrosanct being – seems the perfect metaphor for post-traumatic growth and transformation.
As a member of the BACP, I work within their ethical framework for good practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I adhere to BPS practice and ethical research guidelines.
