Maternity - Pablo Picasso
My initial training and vocation was in working with young children. For thirty years I worked in Nurseries and Infant Schools, which has given me practical and theoretical understanding of our primary needs. When I retrained as a therapist I came to understand the ways in which our early experiences form us and continue to impact our adult lives, and how these might be worked with.
I have specific experience of working with:
People who have suffered Bereavement (City and East London Bereavement Service).
Artists - issues facing artists, musicians and creative artists and the valuable contribution creativity can make to therapeutic work.
I have worked with people from a wide range of ethnicity; with refugees and migrants, and I have in-depth experience and understanding of second generation issues of identity.
I welcome clients from all backgrounds, cultures and sexual orientations.
Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (Mary Ward Centre)

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and work within their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
