About me and my therapy practice

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist with over 25 years post-qualifying experience.

I have worked in clinical settings, including CAMHS and the NHS, as well as statutory services including Cornwall, Devon and Bristol Avon North Somerset Local Authorities. I have worked with young people in Schools, Colleges, Crown Courts, and as an advocate within the criminal justice system.

My background is both in Mental Health and Safeguarding, and I specialise in helping young people and adults make sense of how early trauma and childhood experiences can impact on current difficulties, such as re-current depression and anxiety, or destructive cycles of addiction and insecure personal relationships.

I have extensive experience of young people's mental health and wellbeing, including issues of self harm and self-esteem.I have worked with looked-after children, children in Care and adoption issues.

I am an Accredited member of BACP and abide by the code of professional conduct and ethics. I work within Data protection guidelines and my practice is confidential and supervised.

My practice is fully inclusive and we share all decision making.
