I am in ongoing psychoanalytic psychotherapy training with The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis in London, a member of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis (CPJA), and I am a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) trainee therapist. The most recent version of the UKCP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice can be found here.
I have more than six years experience of working one to one with people through Mind in Cambridgeshire (now CPSL Mind) and at SHP (Single Homeless Project) in London, as well as at The Cogwheel Trust and at Salus Wellness in Cambridge. Before practising psychoanalytic psychotherapy, I held various roles working with people who were experiencing some sort of distress, including at Arts and Minds.
I have worked with people who have wanted to talk about their experience of bereavement and other life-changing losses, childhood sexual abuse, chronic health problems, alcohol and drug addiction, and loneliness. I have some understanding of the particular pressures that can be associated with living in Cambridge, often away from family support, sometimes alongside issues around migration or with a feeling of isolation.
