I came to counselling and psychotherapy as a second career after spending 20 years in the corporate sector. My own experiences there of therapy led me to pursue this as a career for myself.
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute in London and am continuing my training there to Masters degree level. I currently work in a general counselling service in West London in addition to seeing clients in my private practice.
I work with a range of presentations including depression, anxiety, bereavement, and relationship difficulties. I am particularly interested in working with clients through periods of transition, where questions of self-identity are prominent, for example adjusting to parenthood, redundancy or relationship loss.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and abide by their Ethical Framework, which guides the values and principles at the heart of my practice: confidentiality, respect, equality. Like all registered therapists I am in regular professional supervision, which provides me with the support I need to work with my clients’ difficult material.
