I hold a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I trained at Metanoia Institute in Ealing, London, a leading centre for psychotherapy training in the UK.
I held a number of voluntary positions before entering private practice, including counselling adult victims of childhood sexual abuse, university students and those working through gender identity issues.
Before studying psychotherapy I worked in industry for over 20 years, and then taught at a university for a number of years.
I am a registered psychotherapist with the UK Council for Pyschotherapy (UKCP) and I'm also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
