I started my adult life as a nurse in London (The Royal Free).  I have a BA hons in The History of Art specialising in works of Art on Paper (Camberwell College of Art). I have worked as a Stress Management Consultant with a recruitment agency for 13 years in the corporate environment. In 2003 I attended the University of Bristol to study my Post graduate Diploma in Counselling whilst working and mothering my three young children.

My work for many years was as a complementary therapist specialising in Fertility. I have helped many women to achieve their dream of becoming a mother over the past 20 years.  I have recently retired from this aspect of my work, leaving more time and energy for my counselling clients.

I qualified as a Couples Counsellor in 2010 since when I have worked with numerous couples presenting with varying complexity of relationship difficulties. I have a particular interest in undiagnosed Aspergers and how the condition brings with it a particular set of challenges in relationships.

As well as Couples and Individuals, my practice includes same sex couples, siblings and friends experiencing problems in their relationships.

I offer comfortable consulting rooms in Bloomsbury and Canada Water.

Daytime and evening sessions available.
