I work as a therapist in private practice offering Psychotherapy & Counselling in Thame Oxfordshire. I also provide training and supervision nationally, supporting professionals in the helping professions.
I initially worked as a Registered General Nurse, in both hospital and the community with adults and children. I moved from nursing to the voluntary sector where, alongside my training and work as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I have managed a counselling charity and co ordinated a youth project for young women at risk of self harm.
