About your Psychologist

I first became interested in the way in which people think, feel and behave when I was a teen.  After a few early adventures, choosing Psychology as a profession was simple.  It seemed a natural thing to do and seems to have been the right thing to do as I remain curious and am still in love with my work.

Early in my career I worked in academic research then spent ten years working in the corporate sector before moving into Private Practice.  I see people presenting with a whole range of issues and have a passion for working with couples.  My couples work currently makes up the majority of my Practice and it is a great joy when I see clients leave therapy feeling pleased they have resolved issues, are geared up to face the many joys and challenges of being in relationship, and have a view of a future that is mutually satisfying and meaningful.

I feel very grateful for my profession and my clients and like to think of my work as my, albeit small, contribution towards more love and compassion in our world.
