My Background

I've worked in mental health services for 13 years. My first degree was in psychology, this lead me into support work, where I worked in and then managed rehabilitation and recovery services for adults with complex mental health needs and/or learning disability, often coming out of long stints in psychiatric units, prison, or having been sleeping rough.

 

My experiences working in these services lead me to pursue further part time clinical training in psychotherapy. Alongside my training I was a director of a social housing organisation providing services for people who were socially excluded, after this I worked as a commissioner of mental health services for the NHS and social services in south London. I've been working in private practice for 6 years now and find the work very rewarding. 

In addition to my private practice I have worked for two years as a counsellor at London Metropolitan University & two years at The Minster Centre Therapy service.
