About Me 

I am currently working in Private Practice at two clinics, based at The Priory Hospital in Chelmsford and also from my home in High Ongar in Essex.


I am passionate about my work and it is important for me to contribute to the wellbeing of others, both in my local and wider community.


I also have a keen interest in the mind/body connection and how both interplay and contribute to both emotional and physical distress.
