About me and my therapy practice
I am 51 years old and worked as a journalist for 13 years before deciding to pursue a career as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
I began my training at Thames Valley University, where I successfully completed the Certificate in Person-Centred Counselling. I then went on to do the Post Graduate Diploma and MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Roehampton University. Since then I have done additional training including a Foundation Course in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at the Awareness Centre in 2012, Developing Skills in Couple Work at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in 2014 and Professional Training in the Therapeutic Use of Mindfulness at the British Mindfulness Institute in 2015.
During my training I worked in the voluntary sector for Faces in Focus, counselling young people up to the age of 25, and for the Creative Therapies Project, counselling Southwark residents suffering from a variety of mental health concerns. In addition, I worked for Tower Hamlets Community Alcohol Team (THCAT) for 18 months, counselling Tower Hamlets residents over the age of 18 affected by alcohol misuse.
After completing my training I worked as a sessional counsellor for Turning Point - South Westminster Drug and Alcohol Service for 15 months, counselling residents in South Westminster affected by drug and alcohol misuse. I also worked for Townley Grammar School in Bexleyheath for two years, counselling pupils. I currently have my own private practice based between Peckham and East Dulwich.
My practice is situated in between Peckham Rye and East Dulwich train stations in South East London.
