About me

I am a professionally qualified psychotherapist, counsellor and coach. I work in private practice in Central Norwich where my clients come to me from many different backgrounds with many different issues they would like to tackle.

Prior to establishing my practice in Norwich, I worked in private practice in Central London for 10 years. I have also worked as a counsellor in higher education at the Royal College of Art and in agency settings. In addition I have managed a counselling service in North London.
