Whatever your reasons for being here ... you are very welcome.


I've worked with a wide and interesting variety of people from many different backgrounds and cultures for many years. Before studying Psychodynamic therapy at the University of Edinburgh I worked in a large bank as a Learning and Development Consultant/Manager supporting colleagues with their career development and training needs. I've spent over 30 years working with people in supportive roles. 

I've a special interest in linguistics; how we communicate with others and with ourselves can and does fundamentally impact the nature of our personal and professional relationships; how we see the world is filtered through the language we use. I'm also interested in how loss, grief and melancholy can deeply affect our capacity to be internally alive affecting our ability to have loving relationships.
