About me

I have an open and exploratory approach, with a unique response to each client. I draw from a range of modalities in order to provide the most useful help and support for you. I balance empathy with challenge, providing a warm and non-judgemental space in which we can find authentic expression and seek the truth about what you bring to therapy.

Whether you are struggling with relationship problems, depression, the loss of a loved one, or would just like to gain some insight and understanding of your life, I will strive to help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a PG Dip. in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy and and a Masters (distinction) I have experience in private practice, working with a wide variety of clients and issues. I have worked at institutions which specialise in bereavement, addiction, and also inner city mental health support.

I am able to teach ‘mindfulness’, I have extensive experience in meditation, having studied Zazen mediation and Zen philosophy intensively for 22 years, and have received Dharma Transmission (certificate to teach in the Zen lineage). In the past I have worked in journalism and, for the last fifteen years, in financial management, which has offered me an invaluable perspective on my client work.
