About me and my therapy practice

I am skilled at delivering Counselling, Psychotherapy, Life Coaching , Supervision and Mediation.

At the core of my therapeutic services is a confidential safe place to reflect on areas of life that may be troubling you being well and being the person you want to be.  I have a depth of good  life, work and training experience to reflect on. When 'in session' I realise the importance of being well grounded, authentic and approachable. I can work at many speeds but it's most important to go at your pace, working on your choices or dilemma to gain some clarity about the life that you want.

I have a career based in the caring professions since 1981 including work with several London local Authorities; the probation service and the third sector (including MIND: MENCAP; Alone in London Service and Centrepoint) and various therapeutic communities (including the Richmond Fellowship; Norman House). Since qualifying as a Counsellor in 1995 I have worked in the university sector running counselling services 5 universities in London and the South East. I have over 20 years of clinical experience and constantly train to get better at my work.

About me and my therapy practice

Background: I am qualified and experienced Psychotherapist and Supervisor with experience of working in the University sector for over two decades. Prior to this I was a counsellor and senior social worker in a variety of clinical and managerial roles in local authorities and third sector projects with a specialism in disability, childcare, exoffenders and working with the homeless. 

Summary of how I work: My supervision work in counselling focuses on ensuring a safe, non-judgemental space for my clients to talk through and explore their cases as well as their practitioner development. I work in a non-directive way allowing my clients/colleagues to explore their professional and personal development with me supporting them along the way.
