About me

I have extensive experience  as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer for over 20 years in a variety of settings with individuals, couples and families dealing with a wide range of issues. My approach is broadly psychodynamic, but I also draw on other techniques such as CBT and Mindfulness as applicable to your difficulties.

Having trained originally in psychology I then worked in the NHS with those recovering from traumatic brain-injuries and psychotic episodes, before training as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the Arbours Association.

After several years as counsellor and supervisor in, and then Head of, University of Hertfordshire Counselling Centre, I went onto become Clinical Manager for a residential Therapeutic Community in London working with people with experiencing self-harm, suicidal thoughts and psychotic experiences. I now practise primarily in St Albans.

Although I work with a wide variety of concerns, I have particular areas of interest including:

  • Young people, and those working with them
  • Self-harm
  • Relationships
  • The impact of illness upon individuals and families
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Self and identity in the age of technology

In addition, I teach and examine for a number of counselling and psychotherapy trainings, including The Counselling Foundation, APT and the Arbours Association. I am also the Psychological Impact Advisor and Counsellor for national charity AMEND. I speak and teach regularly at conferences and workshops on a range of issues, including the

  • psychological impact of illness
  • working with adolescents
  • use and impact of technology
  • self and identity
  • photography for therapeutic purposes.

I am a member of the UKCP, AAP and the COSRT and practice under the UKCP Code of Ethics and Practice.  I hold full professional indemnity insurance, an enhanced CRB check and am a fully accredited UKCP Supervisor.
