For as long as I can remember I have always had an acute regard for and interest in people. This led me initially to work as a teacher in secondary schools and also in adult education.
I have also worked in several mental health care settings. These were within Bexley NHS Oxleas Trust. Firstly on acute psychiatric wards and secondly on a secure unit for offenders with challenging behaviour.
I have also worked for 14 years as a counsellor at BCU Life Skills Centre in Bexleyheath. This is a small charity that offers long term counselling mostly for people with long term mental health difficulties.
Since 2005 I have worked in Private Practice with trainee counsellors as well as individual adults and couples. My specialist interests are working with adults and couples, trauma and relationships .
