In 2002 I took refuge in Tibetan Buddhism in London at Kagyu Samye Dzong London.
I have Fifteen years combined experience working in the NHS, Social Services and Mencap.
Whilst in the NHS I worked within both hospital wards and community for Occupational Therapy. In Social Services and Mencap I worked in a Key Worker role with adults with both physical and mental health issues in day-services and group home.
I have also worked in industry in a managerial and supervisory position, working across 16 countries through Europe, America, North America,Russia, PRC and the Far East.
The experience and learning gained during previous employment has been invaluable to me and has added to my appreciation of cultural diversity, belief systems and ways of being.
During adult life I have searched for my truth and explored and belonged to various spiritual and meditation groups.
In my early twenty's I journeyed to Kathmandu, walked within the beauty of the forests and foothills, and meditated in Buddhist temples in the Kathmandu valley.
Whilst surrounded by the splendor and magnificence of Nepal, I realised that despite travelling thousands of miles from home I still carried my baggage.
So in those early days of studying and soul searching I learnt an inescapable truth; that I cannot escape myself, no matter where I go, and how much I try to ignore that which needs to be attended to.
It is with this realisation and interest in the human environment, that I practice Psychotherapy and Counselling.
