Between 1983 and 2004, as a counsellor in an MS Research clinic, first for a charity, Action and Research for Multiple Sclerosis and then for the National Health Service in Brent, London, UK, I worked with individuals and families affected by MS as well as many different health professionals, in Britain and Europe. I joined Rehabilitation in MS, a pan-European group. In 2004 I moved to Brent Community Services where I still saw many people affected by MS but also people with other physical health conditions, neurological or non-neurological.
In 2004 I set up www.mscounselling.com as a website for professionals who worked with people with Multiple Sclerosis, or with someone concerned about a person with MS. It was aimed at counsellors, nurses, psychotherapists, psychologists, doctors, students, social workers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and professional carers, groups of professionals I had worked with or trained.
