I have been practising in private practice for the past 22 years. I am a registered member of BACP.
I have experience in telephone, Skype and FaceTime counselling as well as working face to face in the counselling room.
I speak English and French.
Using my training, my experience and my intuition in equal parts, I continue to learn from my clients.
My original career was in art, design and fashion.
But I found myself searching for a different kind of creative fulfilment. I started training to work with children but through a series of serendipitous encounters, found myself following the path of various counselling trainings.
My initial training was in Person-centred Counselling, but I subsequently gained my Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from a Sussex BACP accredited course. I have undergone regular training during my years in social services and through Continuing Professional Development.
I started my career in social work, working with children and families before helping with adults’ and older people’s mental health problems in a multi-disciplinary Community Mental Health team with other mental health professionals, gaining invaluable experience in identifying problems other than those safely helped by counselling alone and in working compassionately with the elderly and those suffering from illness and loss.
I have spent many years working in private practice in France.
