About me

I currently work in private practice from my home where there is a room set aside for my work with a separate entrance. There is easy off road parking and the village is served by the 252 Stagecoach bus service which connects Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne and also goes through Heathfield and Crowborough. I also work privately from within a GP Practice in Crowborough and can see clients at either venue.

I train therapists within university settings where I am involved in experiential learning, skills work and personal and professional development groups.
I have research interests within psychotherapy relating to the issues around how research into human experience can be undertaken.

I work with adults, teenagers and children, as well as with groups and couples. I have worked with a wide range of clients and issues including problems arising from illness and death, childhood trauma and relationship difficulties. I work with eating disorders and issues of self-harm. I also work with those who seek to grow and understand themselves better in order to lead a richer life.
