About me

I take an integrative approach to counselling, which combines humanistic, client-centred and psychoanalytic ideas and techniques, and recognises the unique complexity and potential of each individual.

I typically see clients over 18 years old who are looking for help with interpersonal issues, depression and anxiety or those seeking more meaning and motivation in their lives.

I first moved to Asia almost 20 years ago. Originally working as an English teacher in Phnom Penh back in 2003, I have since lived in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, UK and the Netherlands – and experienced first hand many of the challenges that come with being an expat. I have now lived and worked in Hanoi since 2017 and would happily call it my home.

Since 2021 I have been under the clinical training and supervision of Douglas Holwerda – a senior therapist, instructor, and founder of the Hanoi Counseling Psychology Group. As is common ethical practice for therapists in the UK and elsewhere, I continue to meet with Douglas each week for supervision, which includes professional oversight, accountability, support and insight.

Qualifications and training

I have a Master’s degree in the Psychology and Neuroscience of Mental Health from King’s College London with Distinction, and received additional clinical training in integrative psychotherapy here in Hanoi. I also have an MA in European Politics and a BA in Philosophy and English from the University of Sussex and the University of Amsterdam.

In my ongoing professional training I am pursing registration with the British Psychoanalytic Council and plan to begin a clinical doctorate from 2023.
