Experience, Qualifications & Code of Ethics
I have worked since 1979 in adult mental health in a variety of settings: the NHS, in both hospitals and GP surgeries and a therapeutic community . I taught on the Art Therapy training at the University of Hertfordshire, and am currently teaching on the Msc ‘The Psychodynamics of Human Development’ (BPF/Birkbeck)
I trained as an art therapist and then went on to train as a psychotherapist. I have a particular interest in creativity and mother (main carer) and baby relationships and also supervision.
For therapy to be effective it is important that you feel you could build a good working relationship with the therapist. It is also vital that the therapist is qualified with a reputable and recognised training organisation with a code of ethics and complaints procedure. Please find below a list of my qualifications and experience:
I trained as a psychotherapist at the British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF) . The BPF is recognised for its rigorous clinical and academic trainings and is one of the longest established and largest independent providers of Jungian analytic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy for adults and children in the UK. As a member of the BPF I am registered with the Bristish Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)
The British Psychotherapy Foundation is governed by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and follows their rigorous guidelines for ethical conduct. The BPC has a stringent code of ethics and a complaints procedure that ensures high professional standards .
The British Association of Art Therapists is registered with the Health Profession Council .
