I worked in the music business in London for over twenty years, looking after a team of staff and a wide roster of artists. Following a corporate merger, I realised that I was no longer enjoying my work and left to pursue a long held dream to study photography. Following a move to Suffolk, and a period working as a photographer and bringing up a young family, I chose counselling and psychotherapy as my next career.
I have a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Advanced Clinical Practice), from the Minster Centre in London. I also have a Foundation Degree of Arts in Counselling (Passed with Distinction) from the Universities of East Anglia and Essex. I am a Certified Cyber Therapist, having trained at the Online Therapy Institute. I also have a BA(Hons) in History and a Postgraduate Certificate (with Distinction) in Photography.
I am a qualified EMDR practitioner and also hold a Certificate in Adoption Support Counselling.
I offer clinical supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and trainees and have an Advanced Certificate in Clinical Supervision.
I am a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (full clinical psychotherapist) and an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I am a member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online and the Suffolk Association for Counselling.
I am DBS checked and hold professional indemnity insurance.
