About me

I am a BACP accredited and registered psychotherapist (www.bacp.co.uk) with over ten years’ experience. In addition to my own therapy practice I have worked as a therapist within the NHS and the Youth Offending Service, for MIND and in various secondary and higher education institutions including the City Literary Institute in London and Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.


I completed my original psychotherapy training at Spectrum, the largest humanistic therapy centre in the country (www.spectrumtherapy.co.uk). I have more recently undertaken a three-year training in Pesso Boyden Method which influences my work in many ways (http://pessoboydenuk.org/pesso-boyden-therapy/).

My background is in the arts. Originally a landscape architect, I designed school and community sensory gardens before starting my own garden design business. I also worked as a theatre designer and art director for a number of years. I am a partner, a mother and a stepmother.
