About me

I have been a therapist for over thirty years. As well as seeing private clients, I worked for eleven years at a young people's counselling and information service in Cambridge and for nineteen years at an organisation for refugees and political victims of torture in London. I currently work with a charity for trafficked women and women in forced marriages.

I also work with private clients in Cambridge in a garden studio which offers a secluded safe space down a long, leafy passage, with free parking. I also work with clients worldwide using phone, whatsapp or zoom.

My core formal training is psychodynamic, but I have been influenced by a range of approaches and have developed my own flexible style. I believe that no one method is suitable for all clients or all situations. Only experience can guide us to use our judgement and identify the most appropriate approach for each situation, whether this concerns attachment, relationships, family history, or the workplace.

I have worked in England with clients in a wide range of situations, from trauma to the problems of everyday life, which are often created by political and economic uncertainty, and have also sometimes served as key worker and welfare advocate.

I have also lived and worked abroad, and been involved in training programmes and anthropological fieldwork in Asia, Russia and the USA. Through my long-term collaboration with anthropologists, I am particularly aware of the need for diverse approaches in psychotherapy, and of their differing appropriateness for different clients, situations and cultures. I worked in student pastoral care in Sri Lanka during the early stages of the civil war, and was involved in setting up a therapy organisation in a multi-ethnic region of Russia during a period of political transition. There, I trained novice therapists, schoolteachers and others not only in client work, but also in handling local government and public opinion in a society where therapy was still unknown or mistrusted.

These experiences have reinforced my conviction that therapy must be for the sake of the client, to change their lives for the better, and also to enable them to function in society; that trust between therapist and client is vital for working together to develop coping strategies; and that in order to be really effective, one needs a diversity of approach and flexibility of response.

I am registered with BUPA and AXA.
