My Story

Before embarking on a vocation as a psychotherapist in Tooting, Southampton, and online, and after gaining a 3 year professional acting diploma (ALRA), I worked as a residential social worker in a specialist children’s home. I identified with some of the children’s experiences there and began writing therapeutic reports for the legal process involved. This deepened an interest in how childhood experience can remain hidden and unknown to us as adults. In undertaking a post-graduate diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy, and in receiving the extensive personal therapy required, I found my own relief and answers – and a deep enthusiasm and willingness to help people experience the same type of learning and epiphany – or to offer, as one client described it “a game changer”.
