Background and Experience
I have been working in the field of therapy for 16 years - helping a large number of people from different economic, cultural, and religious backgrounds - to go from where they are now, to where they want to be in both organisational as well as private settings. I work in conjunction with Primary Health Organisations and also accept referrals from General Practitioners.
I have a high awareness of cultural diversity and have experience working alongside professional interpreters.
I continuously advance my professional training through workshops and seminars, which I regard as being essential in keeping up to date with latest therapeutic knowledge and research findings.
