"When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. " Ralph Waldo Emerson
I worked in education for over 20 years before deciding to train as a counsellor. During this time I became part of a team supporting education for children in care and developed a deep interest in attachment theory. This coincided with a desire to have personal therapy which in turn led me to embark on a therapeutic training and a change in my working life. My counselling experience includes working at a Creative Therapies Project in SE London, as a counsellor at City Lit, London's largest adult education institution and briefly in a GP practice in SW London. More recently I have worked as a counsellor with women experiencing issues connected to pregnancy, birth and motherhood or managing depression or anxiety whilst caring for young children ( to read about this work just CLICK HERE) and I have also volunteered with homeless refugees and asylum seekers. After working for a short time with NHS clients in an IAPT service, I now work for a mental health charity where I support families through working with parents. In private practice I work with a wide range of presenting issues and offer both short term and long term work depending on your needs and preference.
