Royal Central School of Speech and Drama graduate
I hold a current Enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) certificate.
I originally trained as an actress and have worked in theatre, film and television for many years. I have also worked as a chef, a teacher and as a welfare advisor in a busy London university. My lifelong fascination with people and what makes them tick, and my considerable experience of working in diverse areas of employment with people from a wide variety of backgrounds, informs and enhances my work as a therapist.
I am currently working as a counsellor at a central London university and have worked with primary school children with Place2Be for two and a half years. I also worked as a counsellor at the University of Roehampton for a year, where students presented with such issues as anxiety, depression, self-harm and eating disorders.
It is vital for me to continue learning and expanding my knowledge in order to improve and enhance my practice, so I continue to attend courses and workshops on, for example, bereavement, eating disorders, suicide and children with trauma, as part of my continuing professional development.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics.
