I live in Ramsgate in Kent having lived and worked in London most of my life. I started out as a choreographer and become an academic in the arts with an expertise in Psychoanalysis. I received Psychotherapy myself following a traumatic experience and then again following bereavement. I retrained following an extended relocation to Saudi Arabia for work.
