About me

I'm 47.  I started training as a psychotherapist in 2005, at the Karuna Institute in Devon, which is an organisational member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.   I graduated with an MA in psychotherapy from Middlesex University in 2013.  I have been seeing clients for five years, and have completed placements at both the Assertive Outreach Team of the Cornwall Partnership Trust, and the Margaret Jackson Centre in Exeter.


I originally decided to train as a psychotherapist because I was especially interested in the relationship between nature, landscape and mental wellbeing.  As well as working in private practice, I run a project at the University of Exeter's campuses in Penryn and Truro that seeks to increase the number of 'nature prescriptions' provided by GPs to patients with long-term conditions; effectively providing a 'dose of nature'.  You can find out more about this at www.adoseofnature.net.


In the past I have worked in environmental policy, climate and public health research, community engagement, and as an economic development consultant.
