I am a qualified integrative arts psychotherapist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the UK Council for Psychotherapy. I am also a member of British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT). I have expertise in Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT) and I am an accredited practitioner in this model. I am a medical doctor specialized in neurology. I have completed my PhD at the Institute of Neurology, at the University College of London. Having an interest in psychology, psychotherapy, and the arts, I then decided to retrain in art psychotherapy and subsequently completed an MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy at the Institute of Arts in Therapy and Education (IATE). I also completed the Foundation Course at the Institute of Group Analysis, London. My clinical approach is integrative with specific interest in psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, Jungian, attachment theory alongside neuroscience. I understand the importance of providing a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental space in order to promote the journey of self-discovery through the creative process. Furthermore, its potential to transform; the creative process can facilitate the expression of feelings when it is difficult to find a language to express them. I understand the importance of a solid therapeutic relationship as a key element to facilitate inner strength and the healing process in the client. I have worked in several clinical settings within the National Health Service (NHS) gaining experience working with adults with a variety of psychological difficulties including specialist personality disorder service. I am part of the London Art Therapies Centre and I have expertise in offering medium and long-term individual and group therapy.
