About me

Supporting you at times of change

Are you going through a time of unexpected or significant change? Big life changes are often unplanned or unexpected. For example the death of someone we love; illness, accident or disability; a traumatic event; relationship breakdown; redundancy. Would you like support to deal with the emotional, mental and physical impact and consequences?

Or do you want to make changes to your life but are unsure how to begin? Are you feeling stuck in some way?

If there’s one thing that’s certain in life, it’s change. Counselling and psychotherapy can offer you a confidential space to explore a specific change you’re facing, along with your attitudes to change and how you can form a more satisfying response that’s right for you.

I can work with you:

  • To deal with the emotional, mental and physical impact of external change
  • To support you in exploring possibilities, choices and changes you might make
  • To navigate and manage yourself through the process of internal and external change

Whatever stage of life we find ourselves and whatever we’re facing, I believe our experience is an ongoing process with which we can meaningfully engage.

If you would like support with making or managing any kind of personal change, please contact me to make an initial appointment to explore this further.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained and am in ongoing professional development at Spectrum, a London-based psychotherapy centre. I work with individuals – adults – primarily with Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Formative Psychology.

I have completed six years' training which includes the following courses:

  • Oxford Cambridge and RSA Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • Spectrum Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • Spectrum One Year Course in Psychotherapy
  • Spectrum Post-Graduate Course in Psychotherapy
  • Basic, Intermediate, & Advanced Sexuality
  • Childhood Sexual Abuse, Occurrence and Prevention
  • Reparenting Intensive
  • Developing Clinical Skills

I have worked in the statutory and voluntary sectors, in health and social care settings, community development, communications and consultation. I’ve worked with older people, adults with learning difficulties, people who have had a stroke and people with HIV/AIDS. I originally went to art college and now also work supporting students with mental health problems and disabled students.
