My professional qualifications
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Studies from Westminster Pastoral Foundation, one of the foremost psychodynamic and psychoanalytic training centres in the country. In addition I trained at the Tavistock and Portman Trust on the course that their trauma unit developed for a greater understanding of the psychoanalytic approach to helping traumatised clients. I have a Certificate of Studies from the Tavistock.

In addition to my client work, I also offer training workshops aimed at familiarising other therapists with some of the issues that they might encounter when working with traumatised clients. I also work as a mentor to therapists in training.
