Dean (Counsellor in Training)


I joined Aurora in March 2018. I am currently a second-year trainee therapist, studying my BSc in Integrative Counselling at East London University.


Prior to starting university, I had a ten-year career in mental health covering a plethora of settings from child and adolescent to adult medium secure, forensics.


I work in an integrative way, drawing on the strengths of humanistic, psychodynamic cognitive behavioural therapies within a coherent framework for positive change in an a safe, empathetic, contained and confidential space. Sessions will progress at your own pace, and I will work with you in a way which allows you to feel in control of the direction and the content of the sessions. I value each client and recognise that we are all unique, with our own set of circumstances which have shaped our lives.
