I graduated in Psychology at the University of Geneva in Switzerland before moving to London in 2002 where I trained as a psychotherapist and counsellor at the Regent's College School of Psychotherapy and Counselling (now Regent's University).
While there, I completed an MA in Psychotherapy as well as an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy.
More recently I have also completed a PhD in Psychotherapy and Counselling with the University of Wales (in conjunction with Regents' University in London). In my thesis, I researched ways in which the psychotherapy environment can address the experience of migration and adaptation in a new country.
Alongside my private practice, I have worked with clients in a wide range of organisations in London, including the Refugee Therapy Center, St Bartholomew's Hospital, Islington MIND and Waterloo Community Counselling. I have also for many years worked as a counsellor with with refugees and asylum seekers at the Multi-Ethnic Counselling Service.
My training in psychotherapy and counselling has been integrative, which means that I have learned and draw on a range of styles of therapy - mainly psycho-dynamic, humanistic and solutions-focused. It also means I can adapt to your particular needs and can work both short or long-term. My approach is based on a non-discrimination policy. I do not discriminate against people on the basis of their gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, age, spiritual beliefs and practices or political views.
