My Approach

It is my aim at all times to ensure that the work is governed by the needs and best instincts of the client. On the therapeutic journey I will go only where you are prepared to go. You are in the driving seat and at best I am the observer and occasional navigator, helping you to arrive safely at your destination.


An essential part of my role as a therapist is to provide a safe and non-judgemental place where you can speak freely and with confidence, knowing you will be heard and responded to with honesty.

I work within BAC & UKCP guidelines on client confidentiality and ethical practice.


Professional Background

I settled in France in Autumn 2005 after 20 years work in London in the field of personal development.

I trained at the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust, London, and after qualifying, had an independent psychotherapy practice. I was also a freelance trainer for the voluntary and statutory sectors working with groups on communication skills.

I worked full-time for the NHS as a health adviser in several central London hospitals. I was able to offer short, medium and long-term counselling and psychotherapy.

For five years I was an external tutor to medical students at Queen Mary and Westfield College, London and I taught regularly at The Royal London Hospital and St Bartholomew’s Hospital on the postgraduate medical teaching programme.
