I am a family and systemic psychotherapist, dramatherapist, clinical supervisor and yoga teacher.
I offer individual, couple, family or group therapy for clients wanting to understand better and resolve areas of difficulty in their lives. As a family therapist I include talking and creative methods. In my dramatherapy sessions I offer more creative work and less talking.
I work with individuals and teams in my supervision practice which includes talking and creative activities.
I have recently returned from India after completing a yoga training and am now offering therapeutic yoga.
I work from home in West Norwood and also work in clients homes as well as renting spaces.
From September I am offering a dramatherapy workshop and ongoing dramatherapy group in a yoga centre near Brixton.
