ABOUT ME

APPROACH
TRAINING

I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist with flexible working hours and I offer a sliding scale for people on low income and students.

My approach is to offer empathetic understanding and non-judgmental listening in a safe space.  Everyone is unique and therefore I draw on many different methods to suit each person's needs. My aim is to connect my client with their own inner resources through authenticity and self-empowerment.

I work with individuals and couples - short and long term therapy.

BACKGROUND

Before training as a psychotherapist I worked for many years in broadcast and corporate television, event management and communications as a producer/director running my own production company.  I worked for NGOs including Amnesty International and WWF and ran Greenpeace’s international film and video unit for five years.  My corporate clients have included Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Barclays, Coca-Cola, BG and BP, for whom I specialised in senior leadership communications.  I have travelled extensively world-wide for work. I support and volunteer for two charities that raise funds for disabled and disadvantaged children.
