Turvey Centre For Psychotherapy
I have 28 years experience working for the NHS as a mental health nurse and latterly as an individual psychotherapist and group analyst with specialisms in working with people experiencing mental health issues, marginalisation, complexity of childhood experience, self harm, and addiction difficulties.
I have many years experience of working with people who feel on the edge of society and in particular with people who identify as LGBTQ and/or gender and sexually diverse.
I work within the peaceful environment of Turvey Monastery which is accepting of all and I am part of The Turvey Groupwork Clinical Practice. Please see our website linked at the top of my profile.
You will find travel details on the website.
I believe in offering a safe, non judgemental and supportive space to explore whatever experience you wish and working collaboratively to find a way forward.
As a qualified clinical supervisor I can offer supervision for individuals and groups, and I have experience of working with students and post qualifying individual and group therapists.
