About me

I have been in constant practice since 1993, working both privately and for the NHS, where I helped establish a new Primary Care Counselling Service (Bethlem and Maudsley NHS Trust) and ran clinics in a number of NHS healthcare settings around East Sussex. I left the NHS in 2008 and have been exclusively in private practice since that time.

I have worked with couples, adults, and young adults (18+) maintaining a special interest in depression, bereavement, and family estrangement. I am Integrative in my clinical method, and have carried out additional training in a variety of psychological approaches, including Brief Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness-Based CBT, EMDR, and Motivational Interviewing. When carrying out an assessment I will formulate the most appropriate bespoke approach for each individual client, to help ensure the most positive outcome as quickly and safely as possible.

I have worked extensively with members of the music, TV, stage and wider entertainment professions, as well as with many Healthcare professionals who may be experiencing burnout, or secondary trauma.
