Welcome to my profile. I have many years of experience, both in private practice and the NHS. I work on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of helping you to live life more fully. I also offer supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists.
My private practice is located in Tunbridge Wells, within easy reach of Tonbridge, Crowborough and Sevenoaks.

In addition to running a private practice in Tunbridge Wells since 2002, I have worked continually in the NHS since 2003.

My current NHS role includes providing supervision and training, as well as individual and group psychotherapy.
I am accredited with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and adhere to it's Code of Ethics.
