I've worked in mental health and social care in some capacity for most of my working life. Before I trained to be a psychotherapist I worked in and managed rehabilitation and recovery hostels for adults with complex needs who were coming out of psychiatric units, prison, or, who were homeless. Later, I was a director of a charitable 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 found what I enjoyed most was working with people at depth, and outside of the bounds of rigid models or institutional expectations. This is why I chose to train in psychotherapy.

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.
