I believe that you have the inner resources to find healing and my aim is to provide a safe space in which I can support you to explore your issues, examine your internal world and arrive at personal resolution.
I am a BACP registered therapist who spent my former years as a musician, starting as a classically trained pianist and violinist, becoming a self-taught guitarist and drummer, and then enjoyed a professional career in music during my 20’s.
I joined what evolved into North Westminster Drug & Alcohol Service, in the voluntary sector of the Substance Misuse field, in 2005; becoming a qualified Motivational Interviewing Practitioner and Advanced Group Facilitator, in addition to gaining an NVQ4 in Health & Social Care Management.
I worked 1:1 and in group with over 1000 clients in community-based treatment as a Drug & Alcohol Practitioner, before moving into Treatment Management, Training and Consultancy in 2010, and then qualified as a Counsellor & Psychotherapist in 2014.
Alongside my busy private practice in Harley Street and providing Clinical Consultancy for Music Support/BAPAM/HMUK, and Steps2Recovery, I am on the advisory boards of the Centre for Social Justice and Recovery Group UK, whilst also writing and podcasting for various publications, lecturing at LSBU on the Addiction Psychology MSc, and playing drums for the Council of Neptune.
I come from a Buddhist family and use this philosophy to enhance both my personal and professional life.’
