I am highly trained humanistic and integrative psychotherapist and a member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have completed Masters in Psychotherapy in addition to Higher Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I decided to train as a psychotherapist after I worked and volunteered for one of the Serious Fun camps located in Ireland, which caters for families and children affected by cancer. I still act as an ambassador to the wonderful organisation.

Since, that I have completed a research into Psycho-Oncology focusing on psychotherapeutic exploration of the impact the work has on professionals working on multidisciplinary teams in the field. It explored how said professionals such as doctors, nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists deal with aspects as dealing with ‘death anxiety’, compromised communication and countertransference.

 

 

The research was presented at:

Irish Association for Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy conference in Cork, Ireland, 2016.
British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy conference in Chester, United Kingdom,2017
Irish Association For Counselling and Psychotherapy conference in Kilkenny,2017,Ireland.

My research was published in the booklets on those various conferences and chosen to be discussed at the American based International Psycho-oncology Symposium in 2016. Here is the link to the latest publication.

 

Currently, I offer psychotherapy from my private practice located in Manchester city centre.

 

As I have trained in working with anxiety and undergone complex training in working with Trauma and PTSD therefore, these are the areas I specialise in. I also work with adults concerning the following: depression, stress, bereavement and loss, work related issues, any type of trauma, relationship issues, sexual identity issues, LGBT related issues, anger management problems, OCD, low self esteem, lack of self-care, living with serious illness and family issues.
