Welcome to my profile page.
I am trained in Gestalt Psychotherapy and hold an MA in Gestalt Psychotherapy, PG Dip in Gestalt Counselling, PG Dip in Relational Organisational Gestalt and UKCP Approved Supervisor.
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.
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.
