Before starting my private practice I gained over seven years of clinical experience working therapeutically with clients for the NHS. Here I provided solution-focused brief therapy, short-term counselling and longer-term depth psychotherapy, according to the needs and wishes of the client. I have also provided contract counselling services to the mental health charity, MIND.
