About me

I am a fully qualified BACP registered and accredited Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with over 17 years’ experience. I work as an individual and couples therapist to help you process and work through difficult life experiences. I specialise in trauma work using EMDR.   I am also a Clinical Supervisor for individuals and groups of counsellors and I have a great deal of experience as a seminar leader for counsellors-in-training. I offer a safe, confidential setting and I work at your pace and follow your needs, either working towards a specific target or in an open-ended way.
Professional membership I am a registered and accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I abide by their ethical framework and fulfill their requirements for continuous professional development.

I am a member of EMDR Association UK & Ireland working towards accredited status.

 Professional work experience

In addition to my work as an independent practitioner, I have worked as a psychotherapist in Higher Education, in the voluntary sector and for a Relate Centre. Before becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in IT in the finance industry and before that as a teacher in schools in London and in Zimbabwe, Africa.
