I was born in London and have worked in Counselling and Therapy for the last twenty years. For some of this time I was Training and Development Manager for a large National Parenting Organisation.
I was originally a Theatrical Agent and represented actors, directors and choreographers, before deciding to retrain as a therapist in the 1980's.
I have been part of a stepfamily for more than thirty years and enjoy working with stepfamily issues with individuals, couples and groups. I continue exploring these issues with a small charity, StepIn ASAP who work with anyone in a stepfamily or complicated contemporary family situation.
Having been part of a stepfamily has been an education in itself, providing opportunities that help me continue to learn about the complexities and dynamics of families, which deeply resource me both personally and professionally.
Being an older woman now, I'm also interested in supporting people as they move out of the child rearing part of their lives and are interested in looking at later stage issues.
