I am a psychotherapist registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy and work within their ethical framework. I have Diplomas in Psychotherapy (2008) and Counselling (2004) and a Diploma in Supervision (2014) from Re-Vision Centre for Integrative Psychosynthesis.
I have my own private practice based in Wenhaston, Suffolk, where I see individual adults for therapy and provide clinical supervision. I currently also work as a supervisor for four separate services in London and provide private supervision in London on Wednesdays.
In the past I have worked at Respond as a psychotherapist for people with learning disabilities for over 10 years and Harrow Learning Disabilities Team also as a psychotherapist. Until 2009 I was a counsellor for Survivors UK. I have worked in the voluntary sector for many years in a variety of roles and was Director of the Maya Centre, which is a counselling centre for women in Islington.
I have experience of working with a range of issues with adults. These include depression, general anxiety and stress, bereavement, sexuality, disability, domestic violence, physical and sexual abuse, addictions and eating disorders and difficulties at work and in relationships. I have worked with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and different ages. I only work with adults over the age of 18.
I am the Chair of Suffolk Rape Crisis which provides counselling for survivors in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft as well as a confidential helpline.
