About Me

I have practised as a therapist for fifteen years.     After a career in both industry and higher education I trained as a psychotherapist.    I have been involved in the work of five local counselling services as well as being in private practice.    I have worked with a diverse client base; individuals or couples of all ethnic origins and sexuality and all adult ages.

My first degree was in Literature. I began my training journey in Person-Centred Counselling and then completed a Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy.  In 2004 I finished a Masters degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Institute in Nottingham (accredited by the University of Derby).

During my studies I also undertook an additional two year training course in Couples Counselling and continue to update my knowledge regularly.

I am accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and work to their code of ethics.

I have recently started training in Mindfulness and am working towards being a Mindfulness trainer.

I work short-term with both individuals and couples who have a particular concern in their life.   I also work longer term with those who wish to explore patterns and relationships in more depth.
