Being a psychotherapist is not just a job: I consider myself very lucky to have found such a rewarding profession which puts me in close contact with my clients. I am grateful to the people who trust me with their stories, and constantly add to my own learning.
Over the past 13 years, as well as working independently in private practice, I have been a counsellor and psychotherapist in the NHS and for several organisations in the voluntary sector. I currently work both in private practice and for a counselling charity. I am also involved in doing academic research looking at the impact of bereavement.
Earlier in life, I was an academic psychologist then worked for a large corporation for 10 years before managing a successful training company.
