Primary language English
Specialist areas

I have worked as a freelance journalist for 20 years writing features for a range of broadsheets and women's glossies on education, families, parenting, gender, society, relationships, law and health. I also have experience as an editor and writer of non-fiction and as an on-line journalist. I spent some time lecturing on feature writing, reviewing and interviewing on an MA Journalism course at Brunel Univeristy and have also worked in media training. After retraining I now work as a counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice, education and NHS primary care. I write less often but remain involved in journalism and take on features when time allows. I am always on the look out for opportunities to combine my expertise and experience as a therapist with my background as a journalist and writer.
