About me and my therapy practice

Before I moved to Norfolk in 2014, I trained in counselling and psychotherapy with the University of Roehampton, University of Surrey and Regent’s College, London. 

I offer face-to-face therapy to adults, which can also include working with creative methods.  I'm integrative in my way of working, drawing upon person-centred, psychodynamic, existential, postmodern and cognitive approaches where I feel these may be of benefit to the client. 

I meet with clients experiencing quite a wide range of difficulties, who face a challenging time in their lives, for example in relationships, or with their health, experiencing great stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement or loss. I’ve also worked for many years with those struggling with addiction, particularly with problem gambling. With each client I explore what brings them into therapy and is important to them. I work with clients to clarify what emerges in our therapeutic work and how they will essentially live their life.

I've worked in private practice for many years, and in the past as a counsellor with the YMCA in Surbiton, CRUSE Bereavement Care in North Surrey, Surrey Association for Visual Impairment in Fetcham, and through the Sussex Breakeven Counselling Service I worked as a visiting psychotherapist to clients in residential therapy at the Gordon House gambling rehab centre in Beckenham, Kent. I have extensive experience of working as a telephone helpline counsellor with the London-based GamCare National Helpline, helping those affected by problem gambling including family members.
