After spending over 20 years in the City of London working within the legal and financial industries, changing circumstances and personal health issues encouraged me to take a new direction. Difficult life experiences and an underlying desire to support and help others inspired me to retrain to become a counsellor.

My continued voluntary work for two charitable organisations that specialise in the fields of bereavement (pre and post loss) and mental health issues allows me to provide counselling support to adults and young people within the community. I specialise in working with people with hidden disabilities and chronic pain conditions, particularly Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

I have experience in a broad range of psychological difficulties and I actively seek Continued Professional Development as well as training opportunities to enhance knowledge and therapeutic skill set.
