My experience & therapeutic training
Qualifying in 2007, I have worked with people of all ages and walks of life with widely ranging problems: from eating and personality disorders to bereavement, from stress and anxiety to depression, suicidal inclinations and drug dependency.
My training is in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy. This includes Person-Centred, Experiential, Focusing-Orientated, Solution-Focused, Mindfulness and Compassionate Focused therapies. I continue to engage in regular continuing professional development in these.

Born in Africa I was brought up in the Caribbean, while going to school and university in England. After a number of years in professional theatre, I was ordained as a Buddhist, and worked as a mentor and trainer for 20 years in a variety of different situations, and for many years in retreat centres. Hence my interest in people, the complexities of life and effective communication.
