About me

I have over twenty-five years of experience working as a therapist in residential and outpatient settings, working with a wide variety of presenting issues. I particularly specialise in working with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex PTSD/developmental/attachment based trauma and dissociation, but I also have many years of experience of working with depression, low self-esteem, and anxiety related issues.
I began my first therapeutic training 27 years ago in London where I was based at the time.

I spent eight years working within a Rape Crisis Centre. This began as a volunteer placement as part of my therapeutic training. This placement progressed to an employed position and in my last year I was the Rape Crisis centre manager. Within the centre I offered face to face and helpline counselling. I co-wrote and delivered a training package for prospective volunteers and engaged in a lot of media related and consultancy work to both external agencies and media related organisations. During my time working within Rape Crisis and for a while afterwards I was part of an advisory body to the Metropolitan Police (based at New Scotland Yard) on Rape and Sexual Assaults. This was primarily focussed on improving the treatment and services for victims of these crimes. As part of my rape crisis work, I also supervised volunteers within the charity I was working within as well as volunteers who were working for a local Domestic Violence charity. I also sat for many years on the local (to the Rape Crisis Centre) council Domestic Violence forum.

After my time with Rape Crisis, I worked within the NHS as project co-ordinator for a pilot project to both raise awareness of domestic violence, and to introduce routine screening for domestic violence into A & E and Maternity Departments. As part of this work, I delivered comprehensive training in awareness of domestic violence and its effects to medical and nursing staff.

I also worked within Canterbury Christchurch University as a senior lecturer as part of their Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme as well as being lead examiner and clinical supervisor to students on the IAPT training course within Canterbury Christchurch University.
I now run a busy private practice in the South East of England and online.
