My clinical experience includes working with adults of all ages in a variety of organisational settings, including a GP's surgery, employee counselling service, the voluntary sector, insurance companies and a primary care psychotherapy and counselling service provider for the NHS.

Issues I have worked with include depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, bereavement, childhood abuse, work-related stress, divorce, and personal development.

I have a particular interest in working with adults with a recent diagnosis of autism whether that be "formal" or self identified, and their families.

I have experience working with trainee counsellors and psychotherapists studying at diploma, Bachelors and Masters  degree level.
