As well as seeing clients in private practice I have worked at an alcohol addiction and recovery centre, in a low cost therapy service and have been an associate counsellor at SOAS (University of London). Experience with children includes training and volunteering with Place2Be, counselling secondary school students, and working at Multikids Inclusive Academy in Accra. I have also held a position as an honorary counsellor/psychotherapist at Lewisham Hospital (South London and Maudsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust). I also work as an actor, have worked as a presenter and have served on arts and educational governing bodies.
I have received specialist training in working with alcohol and addiction from HAGA/Haringey Recovery Service. Additional training includes eating disorders, self-harm and suicide and FGM (female genital mutilation). I have also trained as a mediator in neighbour disputes with Camden Mediation Service. I have spent many years working with mindfulness through yoga and I have experience of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR). I continue to develop my interest in body-focused, trauma-informed approaches integrating sensorimotor psychotherapy and ideas from Internal Family Systems and contemporary understandings from neurobiologically-informed therapy modalities.
Additionally I am a member of:
The Black, African & Asian Therapists' Network (click to see their directory of therapists), and Psychotherapists & Counsellors for Social Responsibility and I'm on the executive committee of The Relational School.
