About me

I initially trained as a Psychiatric Nurse at the Maudsley Hospital, part of Kings College University, London. After my nursing training I spent two years working on the ward as a front line nurse, and whilst working I acquired my certificate in CBT for Psychosis. It was during this training that I became interested in the unconscious processes that influence our behaviour and 2 years later, I commenced my psychotherapy training at the Arbours Association Training.

I have a special interest in Child and Family, and I am accredited to work with adults, adolescents, and family.


I have 15 years’ worth of experience of working both in the NHS and private practice offering psychotherapy, executive coaching, counselling and 20 years as a registered nurse.

Holistic approach

I see all my clients as individuals and aim to work with them in a holistic way, i.e, not just focusing on the unconscious processes but looking at other aspects of the individual’s life that might be playing a part in their current difficulties.


I am fully insured and a registered member of UKCP (the governing body for psychotherapy) as well as NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council).
