A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life
I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist for 30 years. I first trained in counselling in 1989 and once qualified began to work with addictions issues at The Blenheim Project in London. I then began my psychotherapy training with Metanoina which is a 6 years training. At present I work online due to the situation with Coronavirus 19.
Until recently I have always combined my private practice with working for charities. I was the Director of Services at The Minster Centre in London, where I managed the delivery of low cost counselling and psychotherapy services to some of the most disadvantaged communities in our society. Prior to that I was the Director of Bromely counselling Service providing a low cost local community counselling services. I worked for over 25 years with charities providing counselling services t. I have also worked within the private sector working with Aviva, Care First, Moving Minds, and The Priory.
I work with adults and couples with a broad range of issues using a Gestalt orientation, bringing the present “here and now” into the therapy. Through the process of counselling or therapy, you can gain greater self-awareness.
I work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds, coming to me with a diverse range of issues. As a fully-qualified and Senior Accredited counsellor and supervisor I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and abide by their code of ethics.
