About me

I am a focusing-oriented therapist and supervisor. I hold qualifications in Counselling, Focusing-oriented therapy and Supervision.  Having worked substantially in counselling for drug and alcohol problems, my PhD studied the theory and practice of therapy for addictions in some depth. Recently I have been involved in couples work and therapy that takes a cognitive-analytic orientation.

Currently, I offer counselling and clinical supervision in private practice. I also counsel survivors of sexual abuse in a local charity and work as a Psychological Practitioner for the NHS in a drug and alcohol partnership. In the past I have acted as an Associate Tutor for the University of East Anglia.

I enjoy offering focusing-oriented therapy, shaping the process to meet the need of a client. I like to be open-minded in supervision and enjoy working with therapists from a variety of orientations.
