I have worked in private practice for the past ten years, but my experience is extremely broad having worked with the University of Cambridge since 2002, Cambridge Rape Crisis, Anglia Ruskin University and also for the NHS.


I ran both postgraduate and undergraduate ongoing therapy groups for many years and also designed and facilitated the Disordered Eating Group within the University Counselling Service. I have also offered numerous workshops and talks within the University of Cambridge and for Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre.


I was a tutor for a number of years on the year-long Supervision training course at the Institute of Group Analysis, London.


I have worked with and supervised at The Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre and SERICC (South Essex Rape and Incest Crisis Centre) for eight years.  I have designed and led various groups for survivors of Sexual Abuse and Rape and a focused support group for Mothers of Young Survivors.


I co-ordinated the Peer Support scheme within the University of Cambridge for six years, training students in a 30-hour program focusing on effective communication, offering effective support, boundaries and crisis management. This role also included offering ongoing supervision and support of peer supporters through Reflective Practice groups and CPD events.


I am an accredited member of BACP (The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) having chaired the Executive Committee of the BACP: Universities & Colleges Division 2012-2013, as well as chairing the Conference Committee 2010 - 2012
