With a background as a professional musician, after over twenty years of performing baroque music around the world I embarked on counselling and psychotherapy training with a view to engaging in a different kind of listening and connection with people. I bring a musician’s attunement and sensitivity and a broad, inclusive and open outlook to my therapeutic work.
I have nine years' experience as a therapist, and have worked with people from diverse backgrounds, with a wide range of issues.
I trained in counselling and subsequently in psychotherapy at the Psychosynthesis Trust in London which provides integrative, holistic and creative trainings accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I qualified with a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling in 2016 and a Master of Arts degree (MA) in Psychotherapy in 2020. Both are Level 7 awards validated by Middlesex University.
I trained as a supervisor with Robin Shohet and Joan Wilmot, qualifying in 2023 with a Certificate in Supervision from CSTD London, the longest-established supervision training body in the UK. I have two years' experience of supervising, and welcome enquiries from therapists and from anyone involved in pastoral, mentoring, therapeutic, supportive or caring roles. Supervision gives you a reflective space to explore and process work-related experiences, challenges and relationships. I offer a free introductory session so we can explore your needs from supervision and see how we might work together.
