I worked in a number of different fields before training as  a therapeutic counsellor in 1995. This included teaching  and residential childcare. I then undertook a diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy which enables me to work  with deeper rooted issues. I have had 15 years’ experience working within the NHS. I meet BACP requirements  to offer clinical supervision. I have qualified in EMDR and Couple Therapy for Depression. I have trained in Systemic Family Therapy and have seven years’ experience working with alcohol dependency.

After a varied career in General nursing within hospital environments I was later employed as a Practice Nurse within a busy local health centre for many years. I then trained and qualified as a counsellor and have worked in this capacity as a Primary Care Counsellor within the NHS. I have also experience of working as an Occupational Health Counsellor and providing a Specialised Women’s Counselling Service and so have a vast experience of working with a wide range of issues. I then trained in psychotherapy and qualified as a UKCP Psychotherapist in 2006, the following year I obtained my Diploma in Clinical Supervision. My career as a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor continue in my private practice Temenos. I have a long term interest in spirituality and energy work.
