My expertise and credentials

I have always had a passion for languages and graduated in English Linguistics. When I moved to Cambridge in 2000 I got my CELTA qualification to teach English to foreign adults. I also hold a Professional Certificate in Marketing as well as a Diploma in Communications, both accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

My work experience so far covers a diverse range of sectors, and often had jobs in high-pressured, stressful environments, some with ethos and values very different to mine.: from Marketing and Events Management, business administration, and language teaching, to massage and complementary therapies (including Reiki and spiritual healing) and counselling.

Also, I have been practising as a massage and complementary therapist part-time in Cambridge, UK, since 2012. I am a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) and a member of the Massage Society at the University of Cambridge. I’m also a Reiki practitioner and a spiritual healer.

My professional counsellor qualification complements my energy work and manual therapies really well as I am able to integrate these with somatic experiencing in my counselling sessions. I have experience working with both adults and children and with clients presenting issues in these areas:

  • Adult and child bereavement and loss (including the loss of a child)
  • Male and female abuse (physical, emotional and sexual)
  • Childhood trauma and sexual abuse
  • Communication problems and interpersonal conflicts‚Äďboth relationship and workplace
  • Stress, anxiety and/or depression
  • Intercultural awareness and cultural adaptation
  • Overthinking and negative self-talk

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society and uphold their professional standards of conduct. In addition to ongoing supervision of my counselling practice. I am working towards further accreduation and I am fully committed to continuous professional development: I attend regular training sessions and workshops to give the very best service and support to my clients. I hold an enhanced DBS check, which covers my work with children as well as adults. As a practising therapist, I have full professional indemnity (PI) insurance to protect both my clients and I.

I can offer cultural awareness and sensitivity, and I am used to working with clients across Gender, Sexual & Relationship Diversity (GSRD). Book a counselling session with me.
