About the Practitioner
I qualified in the early 1990s and have extensive experience in private practice as well as in the voluntary sector. I have worked with individuals and groups who have brought a variety of concerns from relationship difficulties, to bereavement; from childhood abuse to becoming disabled and much more. I have personal experience of disability, and of being a 'carer' for family members experiencing dementia, stroke and needing support through significant change in their lives. My initial training was in Gestalt Psychotherapy though I would describe my approach now as integrative. I aim to work with you in the way that best suits you and will have the highest chance of supporting you to reach your goals or make the changes you want in your life; you're the boss! I may have the knowledge and experience of psychotherapy and counselling but you know yourself better than I do, and can best lead your own change with the support that counselling brings. I am also a trained clinical supervisor and have worked as a clinical supervisor since the early 1990s. I have provided face-to-face, 1-1 and group supervision both privately and via voluntary sector organisations. Since 2016, I have also worked online as a supervisor, using webcam and Instant Messaging with individuals and groups. I am a BACP Senior Accredited member.
