I am currently completing my studies in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at The Philadelphia Association (UKCP accredited), working in private practice and the voluntary sector.
With a humanities background and an interest in the arts, I have worked more recently in end-of-life care and bereavement support.
In 2006/7 I lived in Lothlorien Therapeutic Community which continues to inform my interest in alternative approaches to mental health care and perspectives on human suffering.
Between 2008 -2015 I was involved in a Buddhist practice community, taking part in many group, meditation retreats and education programmes. I continue to appreciate the value of sitting meditation practice.
