About me


I am a mature and experienced practitioner. I trained and worked in medicine before moving into the world of mental health and counselling 20 years ago.

I believe in working in an open and collaborative way with people. I have a real trust in people’s potential to heal and I see myself as someone who can help you find your own resources and self trust.

I work with general issues as well as having some particular interests-

Couples Work; Anxiety; Parenting a child with Autism; Complex Trauma; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; Anorexia; Bereavment and Grief.

Training, qualifications & experience

My initial career was in medicine. I qualified and worked as a medical doctor and specialised in Spinal Injury and Neurological Rehabilitation.

I became interested in the emotional and spiritual aspects of illness and the connection between the mind and the body, and this has informed my approach in all my roles.

I developed and pursued an interest in neurobiology which continues to inform my approach to Psychotherapy.

I developed and pursued an interest in ethical practice which has also continued to inform and shape my approach to Psychotherapy.

In 1998 I moved from Neurology into Psychiatry. I have worked with adults, children and families, forensic services, looked after children, elderly people, and people with learning disability.

In 2002 and 2004 I studied for an advanced diploma in Humanistic Counselling and began my counselling career alongside medicine.
