I have been a practicing psychotherapist and counsellor for 18 years in a wide range of therapeutic settings.

I am accredited with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)

Before setting up a private practice, I gained experience working in counselling clinics, psychiatric hospitals and drug & alcohol services in London and Sussex.

I hold a post-graduate diploma in Integrative / Transpersonal Psychotherapy .

I am also a trained EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) Psychotherapist:  This is the trauma treatment recommended by  the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).

The models I draw on  are

Person-centred Counselling

By drawing on different approaches, I can tailor the therapy in a way that uniquely suits you.
