I qualified as a CBT Therapist in 2001 and my core profession is as an Occupational Therapist. I also studied for a Psychology degree prior to my therapy training. Running alongside my therapy work and training I also have interests in arts and health and in creative practices. I have training in music and writing. You can see my creative training and interests on my personal website here. I have a passion for helping people to manage how they feel through creative methods.

I hold professional indemnity and liability insurance with BALENS and am registered with the Disclosure and Barring Service (previously known as the Criminal Records Bureau service).
