Biography

I am a senior psychotherapist and part of the safeguarding team. I specialised in trauma. Being a student can be very challenging and sometimes overwhelming. I use Eye Movement Desensitisation (EMDR) and Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) to promote fast improvement.

I came to the UK from France 30 years ago to study English. Around that time I had various jobs including bartender, waiter, and dispatch rider. I even had a go at becoming a stand up comedian.

I did all my studies in London and I became a teacher before training as a therapist. I have been fortunate to work in a variety of environments with people from all walks of life. I am very passionate about my job and I enjoy working with young people.
