I graduated as a Dramatherapist from The Roehampton Institute of Dramatherapy (Surrey University) fifteen years ago and have been a full time practicing therapist since then.
I am eclectic in my approach towards the therapy that I facilitate. Although I have a psycho-dynamic background I have also completed formal study in systemic and family therapy approaches.
I have taught on the Roehampton MA in Dramatherapy course, and have facilitated numerous training workshops for care staff, multi disciplinary teams and fellow Arts Therapists.
In recent years I have focused on private practice, working with children and young people. I have also worked within day centres, schools and inpatient wards within hospitals.
I have specialised in working with adults and adolescents with acute mental health problems, such as depression, suicide ideation, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, psychosis, obsessive-compulsive disorder, aspergers syndrome, drug and alcohol addiction, bulimia and anorexia.
In recent years I have also worked more closely with students of dramatherapy, facilitating group and individual therapy sessions, and providing clinical supervision.
