My approach to therapeutic work is integrative. This draws together various therapeutic disciplines to support the whole person, their psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
Following 4 years as a volunteer youth counsellor from 1986 - 1990, I trained as an Integrative Counsellor at the Iron Mill Centre from 1998 - 1990 and then undertook an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling through the CCPE from 2007 - 2010. I completed a certificate in Supervision through CSTD in 2009. I have been in Private Practice for over 20 years.
I am a registered Psychotherapist with UKCP and accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by their professional standards.
I have undertaken additional training in Group facilitation, Supervision and Energy Psychology.
I aim to work in ways that are accessible, supportive, creative and empowering.
I have over 30 years experience working directly with individuals, groups and organizations. This includes working as a Psychotherapist in Private Practice, for a GP surgery, youth agencies and private sector organisations. I also deliver staff development training and supervision in the public and private sectors and facilitate groups and workshops in community, educational and private settings. I am a qualified Social Worker and Youth & Community Worker and have developed a range of projects in youth and community work, training and educational settings.
My first career was working with horses where I schooled young horses, worked in competition yards and taught riding to individuals and groups. I have an interest in sports psychology and hold the British Horse Society Intermediate Instructor qualification. I have worked with young people and adults using horses as a medium to enable people to develop confidence, self awareness and self-esteem. I continue to enjoy contact with horses.
I am part of a network of therapists and trainers, and work closely with other practitioners in related fields.
