About me

I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I follow their ethical guidelines and codes of practice which includes regular supervision and ongoing professional development.

I work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, self-harm, sexuality, trauma, bereavement and loss. 

Eating disorders and OCD: I have long experience working in the National Eating Disorders and OCD Services in the NHS. I still work there part time in a large team of doctors, psychologists, dieticians, occupational therapists, and specialist nurses. This gives me the opportunity to continue to learn from colleagues and patients, and also to contribute to and support the NHS. This in turn supports and informs my practice as a private therapist. 

We can work together to find a way out of the tangle of thoughts and behaviours into a better life. Whether it is anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, ARFID, OSFED, overeating or some combination of these or their common companions, anxiety, depression, OCD, autism and addiction, recovery is possible and there is a way out.

For Friends and Family: having a loved one with an eating disorder can be extremely distressing and confusing. We can work through the feelings of powerlessness and frustration and look at the best practical ways to give support. I can also help you get a better medical understanding of the illness and the ways it can be treated.

Addiction: I work fully concordantly with 12-step recovery programmes. 

I love working with clients to enhance their creativity, to help them:

I'm first and foremost a scholar and student of the Sanskrit, Prakrit and Pali languages of ancient India, and of their poetry and philosophy. I studied these for my first degree and have deepened and broadened my engagement ever since.  I read Sanskrit poetry first thing every morning. 

This love of poetry informs and enriches my work as a therapist. My work as a therapist feeds back into my creative work: it's a way of connecting my heart with others, and this helps to deepen my creative practice.

This love of poetry informs and enriches my work as a therapist. It's also the inspiration for my creative work:  I translate Sanskrit poetry into English, which is itself a way of practicing poetry.
