I began my training at Birkbeck University of London, qualifying at Highgate Counselling Centre (UK. Est.1966) I am a registered member of the BACP - The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work within and in reference to their ethical and professional guidelines. In line with BACP membership I am also committed to my Continuing Professional Development and undertake regular supervision of my work. The BACP is accredited to the British Standards Authority
I am also an active member of a National Listening Charity and my therapeutic practice is based in North London and London Bridge.
Prior to my clinical training I enjoyed a career as a senior executive and people manager. During this time I found that active listening and more crucially ‘subjective thinking' played a key role in understanding and then developing large teams of people; cross culturally and in a wide range of settings.
Whilst my training and clinical experience has provided a framework for understanding the mind of the individual, it is within relationships where healing tends to occur. My knowledge and skills support people suffering acute psychic pain and those living with diagnosed mental health difficulties. Equally, with those who are experiencing a change in their lives, which might now be affecting their wellbeing and enjoyment of life.
"To explain psychotherapy is to describe a relationship like no other - One in which suffering is shared and understood"
