I initially trained as a social worker in Germany. 

I then qualified as a counsellor and Gestalt Therapist 20 years ago in London and since then I have worked as a social worker and therapist in a wide range of settings, in Germany, Ireland and England. 

This included a women's refuge, a therapeutic project for families with children on child protection plans, the children's ward and Special Care Baby Unit of a large teaching hospital and the staff counselling service in a hospital.

Since 1994 I have worked extensively within the area of adoption and fostering. This work has led me to undertake further in-depth training in the effects of early trauma and disrupted relationships and in working therapeutically with children and families.

I have always been drawn to humanistic approaches to therapy and my initial therapy training has been in Gestalt Therapy

Over time I have been influenced by a number of other approaches, particularly attachment based therapies ( Dan Hughes and Kim Golding in particular), Eriksonian Hypnotherapy, Psychosynthesis, Transactional Analysis, Systemic Family therapy as well as creative therapy approaches such as

Art Therapy.

I have come to believe strongly that the therapeutic model is less important than the personal

qualities of the therapist and the quality of the relationship that is built between client and therapist.

I bring myself to the work, my views and personality and I draw on whatever tools may be helpful:

we may just talk or I may use creative techniques like art / visualisation etc.
