About me

Having studied Psychology at university, I worked as a teacher in secondary schools, specialising in supporting young people with additional needs. I then trained as a psychodynamic counsellor at the University of Cambridge.


I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and adhere to their ethical framework.


Through PTUK (Play Therapy UK), I also trained as a Therapeutic Play Practitioner (Christchurch University, Canterbury) and then a Play Therapist (Leeds Beckett University). This training included usng expressive arts which I often incorporate into therapy with adults and young people.


I have recently qualified as a supervisor and can supervise counsellors working with adults and cousnellors/play therapists working with children and young people.


I am now self employed and work as an independent counsellor, psychotherapist and play therapist, as well as a supervisor both privately and in primary and secondary schools in Cambridgeshire.


My private practice is based in Houghton, near Huntingdon.
