I was previously an independent counsellor in private practice in Fontainebleau, France and in Sydney, Australia, working with adults and young people for a wide variety of personal, relationship and work-related issues.
Prior to that, I was a counsellor at ‘The Priory’ in England – a major private psychiatric hospital and part of Europe’s leading independent provider of acute mental health services. During this time I worked with clients with addictions (alcohol, drugs, behavioural), behavioural issues, depression, family problems and other relationship and mental health issues. I have several years’ experience in working with people recovering from alcoholism and addiction in 12-step fellowships and so I am happy to work with this framework as an approach to recovery.
