My consulting rooms are based at Castle Park (CB3 0AX) and in Histon (CB24) - both are easily accessible from all areas in Cambridge or from the A14 if coming from further afield.

I generally conduct my mediations at meeting rooms in the centre of Cambridge although I am able to travel to London and within East Anglia including Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Milton Keynes. I also conduct meetings online via Zoom when time or distance makes meeting in person difficult.
