About me and my therapy practice
My therapeutic experience, which is nearing 3 decades includes working at NHS GP services, Relate, drug & alcohol services, refugee & disability agencies & in private practice.
My counselling style comes from studying many models which have influenced my work in an integrative way. Recent influences have been in the field of neuroscience. Confidentiality and positive regard are paramount to the client/counsellor relationship.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), self-esteem, life transitions, codependency, sexuality, sexual & gender issues, addiction, eating disorders, self harm bereavement, trauma, separation, divorce, miscarriage, abortion, adoption and relationship issues.
I am also interested in therapeutic management styles & has coached companies both in the UK and California.
As life work balance is of key interest, my love of nature and the arts influences my therapy practice. I have has studied Vedic art, energy work, creative writing and am a keen music lover. I practice practices mindfulness & meditation.
