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 been seeing clients since February 2015 and have experience of working 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, and hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling and a Master of Arts degree (MA) in Psychotherapy, both validated by the Professional Development Foundation/Middlesex University. This is an integrative, holistic and creative training accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I have an interest in and some experience of working with people who struggle with their relationship with food and with disordered eating. I have undertaken training and a placement within a Specialist Eating Disorders Service, to deepen my understanding of these areas.
