I practice Psychodynamic Therapy together with an authentic perspective on modern complexities. Having lived and worked among many cultures around the world, I appreciate the challenges of being or belonging in more than one neat box.

I have worked in therapeutic and educational roles with children and adults for over 25 years, including within the NHS.
In addition to my private practice I work as a Seminar Leader and Tutor for Wessex Counselling and Psychotherapy in Frome. Occasionally I also lead private groups, workshops and classes on a variety of subjects.

As a registered member of the BPC and the BACP I adhere to their framework of professional and ethical guidelines.  I attend supervision and regularly undertake post qualification development trainings (CPD) to ensure my practice is up to date, relevant and of the highest standard.  

Some of the CPD trainings I have undertaken include (but are not limited to) studies in: Neuropsychology, Couples therapy, Sexuality and Gender, Eating Disorders, Self-harm, Psychosis, Jungian Studies, Ethics, Diversity, Race & Identity.
