I trained in London at Westminster Pastoral Foundation and The University of East London and gained a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling in 1994 and am accredited and registered with BACP and the Professional Standards Authority.
I have been in private practice for over 20 years and, prior to returning to London 5 years ago, was lead therapist and organiser of Sulis Practice in Bath, and organised workshops for psychotherapists and counsellors.
In addition to my private practice, I also provided counselling to the NHS at a GP Surgery in Bath for 15 years , in Bristol for 3 years, and in London worked at Nightingale Hospital in Lisson Grove, NW1 6SH for 4 years.
I work in accordance with the code of ethics of BACP and I am DBS checked.
Prior to training as a counsellor I worked as a lecturer in adult and further education in Tower Hamlets and Hackney, in London. In the West Country I taught part-time at Wiltshire College on counselling and carework courses in the early days of establishing my private practice.
My interests? I love opera, jazz, theatre and cinema, do yoga, play the flute and walk the coastal paths of Britain, and enjoy watching football and snooker.
