    I have always been fascinated by language and literature, and used characters and stories to make sense of my life and the world we live in.

  • BACP membership and registration
    The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) is one of the main professional bodies for counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK.  It provides an Ethical Framework for Good Practice that I and many other practitioners abide by.

  • EMDR Therapy Basic Training, EMDR Masterclass, 2017
    Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapy based on the brain's innate ability to process and assimilate difficult experiences.  It is especially helpful when we have become stuck with the emotional impact of (major or minor) traumatic experiences in the past.
