I am a trainee Counselling Psychologist, in the final year of my doctorate with City, University of London. I am also an HCPC registered Occupational Psychologist, and currently provide assessment and diagnostic services for university students who suspect they have specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia.
I prefer to work in an integrative way drawing on a range of therapeutic modalities and techniques to support a client’s needs. However, pivotal to my way of working is a relational psychodynamic approach, including a focus on how our current relational patterns have developed from early experience. I also value relational depth within the therapeutic relationship, and aim to offer a real, human connection with my clients – which can be healing itself.
My background and experience in organisational psychology allows me to draw on a different strand of expertise to support difficulties in the workplace, whether these are at the level of the individual, team, or organisation.
My current research is looking at differentiating triggers of emotion dysregulation amongst women diagnosed with autism and/or borderline personality disorder, for the purposes of addressing the under-identification of autism amongst women. My previous research in the fields of organisational psychology and human factors has been presented at international conferences and published in academic journals.
