I have been working as a counsellor in London for over 15 years. I have an MA in

counselling and I am a senior accredited counsellor with the British Association

for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I began studying to be a counsellor in my mid thirties. Before that I had worked

in several careers and had been a lecturer in an Art College, a Classical Music

journalist and also worked in PR and marketing.

I have trained in a number of different approaches to counselling, initially

studying Existential and Psychodynamic therapy and then focussing on CBT

(Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). The CBT approach is the core of how I work

now.

I also have a specialism in treating post traumatic reactions for which I use

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).

Over the years I have worked in a wide variety of settings including the NHS, the

Priory Hospital, low cost mental health centres in London, and for organisations

providing counselling services to businesses.

My many different experiences of counselling work have given me a deep

understanding of psychological difficulties and I have worked successfully with

people suffering from stress, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, anger

issues and post traumatic reactions.

As well as working as a counsellor I also regularly train counsellors and other

professionals in areas such as stress management, post trauma counselling and

sickness absence management.
