I am a Relate trained practitioner with an MA in Relationship Therapy. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.
I am experienced in working with children, individuals, families and couples of all ages and backgrounds, helping them to improve the quality of their relationships. I consider this a privilege.
I am married with two grown up children. Before training as a therapist I studied the History & Theory of Art at Kent Canterbury. I worked in interior and garden design. This was very intimate relational work, helping people with their personal spaces. It was important to understand their priorities, way of life, tastes and differences between partners’ preferences. I learned to be a good listener and to work together with the client to create something new.
In many ways this reflects my therapeutic work; a close collaboration to uncover hope and creative possibilities, at points in life when these might seem to be submerged in difficulties.
Taking the step to come to therapy can be a turning point in itself. I look forward to welcoming you in a safe and relaxed environment to work together on what is important to you.
