I am an experienced therapist and have been working with a wide range of individuals, couples and groups for years as a counsellor and therapist. I am a visiting clinician of the internationally renowned Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, I am therefore qualified to offer psychodynamic and psychoanalytic counselling and psychotherapy including systemic and attachment based trainings.
I am also an accredited coach; as an organisational consultant with an MA from the Tavistock I work privately with organisations, and teams, with individuals and as a leadership and management coach at the London Business School.
Aside from my therapy training, I enjoyed a twenty year career as a manager and leader in the private and public sectors. This means that I understand the world of work and how it impacts on the individual, relationship and family and vice versa.
I continuously undertake training to keep fresh and up to date with current ideas, and I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and the British Society for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have lived and worked in many different countries and I have a genuine interest in different cultures and religions. I have a lot of experience working with mixed race couples, whether that is Irish/English or English/Scottish ie within the UK, or from further afield. I have an interest in couples who have re-located or are re-locating. Perhaps you are now living in a country that you were not born in, or your parents were not born in.
I believe that one of life’s biggest challenges is to be able to live with what we have experienced, and to continue to learn and develop to be the best that we can be, whether as an individual, colleague or partner.
I think that these processes are challenging, and that everyone needs professional support at some point in their lives to deal with our life experiences.
