After completing my degree in 1992, and working at a series of uninspiring jobs,  I began to build up an interest in mental health & wellbeing and enrolled on a one year foundation course in Psychotherapy and Counselling at Regents College, London. This introduction motivated me to train for a further four  years  at The Bowlby Centre, London.


During this time I discovered a deeper understanding of how secure and supportive relationships in childhood enable us to develop a sense of who we are and are likely to be indicative of struggles you are faced with as an adult.

​​​​​​​I now have over eighteen years experience working with both individuals and couples from many different backgrounds, ages and with varied reasons for seeking therapy -  including anxiety and phobias, depression, addiction, loss and bereavement, the impact of trauma and abuse, relationship and parenting difficulties, self harming, eating disorders to name but a few.

 

As well as my therapeutic work with individuals and couples I am a supervisor, teacher of trainee psychotherapists, at the Bowlby Centre and  poetry editor of  the 'Attachment  Journal'.

 

Though my own personal therapeutic journey, both before and during the training, I am passionate about what psychotherapy can offer and the changes that can be achieved.
