Over 25 year experience in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I worked for the NSPCC as a therapist for 14 year before moving to live in Gloucestershire with my family. I then worked for a national Independant Fostering Agency for 2 years and now work as a psychotherapist in the NHS within a specialist mental health team. I also have a part-time private practice where I work with children, young people and adults. I also supervise other practitioners both qualified and students.

I am also qualified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) to work with trauma/post traumatic stress disorder

I am also fully qualified to teach baby massage, this is of particular interest to me as it enhances bonding and attachment which is an area of expertise I have developed over 25 years having received high quality training from the leading experts in this field. I now work with adult attachment and relationship issues both within the NHS and private practice, along with a wide range of related difficulties such as depression, anxiety, parenting difficulties.
