I am from the UK and have lived in Aotearoa for ten years. I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor and have been working for over twenty years as a Registered Therapist. My background is in Cultural Studies (M.A.) and the Fine Arts – painting (B.A.).

I ran a private practice in London, counselling groups and individuals. I also worked for many years both at PACE and E.L.O.P, who provided therapy services for gay, bisexual, lesbian, and transexual clients.

In the UK I was a professional member of the Institute of Transactional Analysis, The U.K. Council of Psychotherapists and The European Assoc. of Transactional Analysis. As a Clinical Psychotherapist I am registered by the Psychotherapy Board of Aotearoa New Zealand and now run a private practice in Auckland, New Zealand.
