About me and my therapy practice

I believe that therapy gives us an unique personal insight which sustains us and helps us to choose better paths throughout life.  In fact, my favourite quote is "Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers" (Tennyson).

I have had 25 years experience of work for the NHS in the Mental Health field, and have Senior Accredited Status with the BACP.  In addition, I am also a supervisor to other psychotherapists, organisations and hospitals. I am an academic lecturer and supervisor to NHS Counselling and Psychotherapy students undertaking their Masters Degrees.

My recent career has been int he NHS where I published a book called "Looking After your Mental Health."

I trained in the psychodynamic Model at Reading University, then the Integrated Model at the Central School of Counselling and Psychotherapy in London.  I then undertook a M.Sc. which included research on health psychology and then presented papers on my research to the Royal College of Science in London on patient motivation. Later, I followed this with an M.A. in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

My particular interest is working with relationship difficulties, anxiety and depression, and alcohol and drug issues.  I firmly believe that therapy is about helping people with unconscious underlying issues which is presenting them from enjoying life more fully.

I was so humbled to be given a Global Award in 2017 by Reading and District  G.HP. for my  psychodynamic work for patients suffering from Trauma, and helping them in their recovery.
