My background and qualifications
Prior to training as a psychotherapist, I worked for over twenty years in broadcasting, marketing and advertising, gaining management experience in both public and private institutions. I obtained valuable experience of organisational, leadership and team dynamics, regularly offering coaching support alongside the responsibilities of my role.
I have spent over three years at the West London Centre for Counselling, a counselling service contracted by the NHS, and have also volunteered with the charity Mind, and at the Richmond Royal Psychiatric Hospital.
