Today she works with individuals and couples, in private practice and also within the NHS.

She is a COSCA accredited trainer in counselling skills, and an accredited member of  BACP. She is also a qualified yoga teacher and has a particular interest in the body-mind link and how yoga and mindfulness improve mental health.
