Following some time working in various community and social welfare settings, my original training was as a person-centred counsellor over twenty years ago.  I later qualified as a Psychodrama Psychotherapist.   

The person-centred approach still informs my work – and offers an opportunity to explore your thoughts, experiences and feelings at your own pace.  The quality of the client - therapist relationship is always very significant and my aim is to work collaboratively with people in the therapy room, in a safe and effective way.  The method of psychodrama is a powerful way of working - and adds further creative possibilities for working with people individually, as well as in groups.   

My experience as a therapist working with adults includes many years working with people who have survived multiple trauma, including violence and abuse – much of this work has been with women - and with people seeking sanctuary as refugees.   I’ve also worked as a therapist in higher education and in various settings through private practice.   

My practice is flexible and holistic, respecting and reflecting the complexity of people’s experiences.  If it’s helpful to include consideration of the wider structures in society, which surround us all – we may also explore their significance in your own life experiences and development.

My qualifications include a Diploma in Advanced Counselling and Therapy Skills (Person Centred) and an Advanced Diploma in Psychodrama Psychotherapy, which led to my registration with the British Psychodrama Association (BPA) as a Practitioner - and with the UKCP as a Psychotherapist.  I also have a Certificate in Counselling Supervision.

Over the years I have worked therapeutically at depth with a wide range of issues.  If you would like to know more about how I work - or would like to meet to see whether we may be able to work together, please contact me to arrange this.   This meeting would last for up to half an hour and the fee for this is £15.
