I have worked in private practice for over 20 years.
I have also worked in the NHS, schools private, voluntary sectors and offer a variety of therapeutic interventions. These include systemic couple therapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR).
People say they find me caring and able to help overcome issues which are troubling or upsetting to them. It can be hard to contact someone to talk at first but people usually find me warm, open and receptive.
I have worked with children and families in schools, with adults for couple and individual therapy in NHS and private hospitals.
I am approved by many private insurance companies such as BUPA, PruHealth, Aviva, Cigna, GroupAMA and others.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
