About Me

I have been practising as a therapist for over 20 years and have a background in Mental Health and Social Care over a period of 35 years, working at both a Senior Leadership and Practitioner level within the NHS, Social Care, Education and Private sectors. As a Therapist I have worked within CAMHS (NHS), leading a Mental Health Team within a Children's Secure Unit as well as the Community Team and I have worked across Hampshire as a CAMHS Therapist for Looked After Children. I have also been a School Counsellor and University Counsellor. After the Public Sector I Headed up a Psychological Therapies Team within a Private Sector SEMH School and their Children's Homes. I started my Private Practice full time in 2014 working with Adults, Young People, Multi-Agency Teams and Organisations, such as fostering and adoption teams, children's homes, schools and supported living for adults.

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.

I have specialised in the area of interpersonal trauma, which is trauma that occurs over a long period of time, usually in relationships or environments the individual may feel stuck in. This can occur in families, relationships, the work place, training institutions, religions, sports environments - anywhere power can be abused. Please feel welcome to visit my website to find out more.
