I am a professionally qualified counsellor who trained at the Gestalt Centre in London. After living in London for over twenty years I recently moved to Surrey. My whole professional life has centred on working to support people through periods of crisis, change and personal development. I have been a mental health social worker since the 1980s and have an ongoing commitment to my vocational, professional and academic training. I currently work part-time in the NHS in mental health and have a wide range of experience in working with depression, trauma, loss and bereavement, including working as a counsellor in a GP surgery. I am especially interested in self-esteem, anxiety, sexuality, relationship issues, and self-development.
In my personal and professional life I have worked through issues of anxiety and low self-esteem over many years. I have experienced personal therapy and also group therapy as part of my training. I am committed to working in a non-judgmental, anti-discriminatory way. I feel that my own personal development, skills and experience enable me to work professionally and authentically with people from a wide variety of backgrounds.
As an accredited member of the BACP, I am bound by its code of ethics and subject to its complaints procedure.
