work in both the charitable and private sectors seeing individual clients. I am
particularly interested in how we balance the stresses of working lives with a
fulfilling life outside of the workplace. I have worked in charitable, private
and public sectors in creative industries prior to counselling work. I have
particular experience working with bereavement and the multiple losses that

experience working with living with chronic illness.† My work has also involved undertaking
assessments for a national therapy provider and telephone consultancy for EAPís

am registered with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP)
through professional membership of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and
I trained as a psychodynamic counsellor at wpf,
a well respected training organisation in the psychodynamic therapy field.
invite you to say whatever is on your mind, and sometimes it is helpful to
start with whatever feels urgent. I am interested in your story and how you

understanding of these reasons that real relief and growth occur.
