I have worked for over 25 years in Entertainment, PR and Communications. Most consistently in the music business but also TV and film, within multi-national corporations, major and independent record labels and consultancies. I have much experience of the fast paced and high-pressure environment common to the media world. This working life has also given me a close perspective on the tension and demands that can accompany creative and artistic output, and how this can be experienced by those who work under the constraints of consistent pressure and expectation.
In more recent years my lifelong interest in Psychology and human behaviour has led me to study counselling and psychotherapy with a view to helping people from all walks of life, in all aspects of their lives.
Whilst my background may offer a more natural understanding of the creative and corporate individual, I have deliberately trained in an experiential, integrative model and within placements that have provided clients from hugely diverse backgrounds of culture, class and ethnicity. I believe these equally differing experiences inform my offering as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
My diploma in Therapuetic Counselling was gained at Richmond College and I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
