About me

I have worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist for 30 years. This includes 17 years in primary care and two years in secondary care. I have also taught counselling skills and psychodynamic counselling at Goldsmiths University. I have worked as an External Examiner for London Metropolitan University for their counselling Masters degree and more recently Middlesex University on theIr MA for psychotherapy & healing.

I am a strong believer in a healthy patient/therapist relationship being a vital part in the healing process.
I have trained psychodynamically and humanistic integrative. I am also interested in spiritual issues having attended a two year spiritual development course in Amsterdam.

I worked for 15 years with primary aged children for Lewisham Education.
