Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

At the GP Practice I do the Cancer Care Reviews and offer counselling to support patients in their journey.
Working in a GP Practice as a HR Manager, I am able to support staff with their employment issues.
I used to run weekend workshops on Race and Difference at the Gestalt Centre, London.
I have a diploma in supervision and offer supervision to the student placements.
