I am a humanistic psychotherapist, counsellor, executive coach and mentor and I am accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I began my career in book publishing, working as an editor, in marketing and in senior management. I have been Editorial Director of Pan Macmillan, Marketing Director of Simon & Schuster and Joint Managing Director of The Women's Press. In addition to my psychotherapy and counselling practice, I am a publishing consultant and writing coach; an executive coach and mentor; co-founder and co-director of the executive coaching organisation, Working Edge; and I work with businesses and organisations on company development, conflict resolution, team building and presentation skills. The common thread in my work is supporting people to develop their personal, professional and creative potential.
I worked as a counsellor at City & Hackney MIND from November 2003 to July 2007. My work with writers and with counselling and therapy clients over many years has included issues ranging from self-esteem, anger management and communication skills to disability, sexuality, childhood sexual abuse and self-harm.
