Hi! I currently live in London. I now work as a Forensic Mental Health Practitioner for Together: For Mental Wellbeing.

The role is rewarding and complex, since January 2015 I have grown in my appreciation of working alongside other skilled mental health practitioners.

In September 2015 I started as a visiting lecturer, supporting students at the University of Greenwich. Working with students on a counselling course is rewarding on a number of levels: their reflective enquiry is enlivening.

In 2014 I worked at a number of interesting places including a prison, the University of Kent and Family Health Isis.

I counsel in private practice and like the diversity of client contact I have in my working week.

When not working I like to play Basketball, ride my Longboard (Silversurfer) play chess listen to good Jazz and Bake artisan breads.

I am passionate about the work I am involved with and look for the moment when the light comes on for a person I am working with. Connect with me!
