Counsellor & Psychotherapist

Experience with a multitude of issues in both private practice, agency settings and within the National Health Service. This has involved working with intensive short-term, long-term and solution focussed work.

Welcoming a change in lifestyle and enthusiastically embracing counselling and psychotherapy. Witnessing their power to enable positive change in people’s lives. This has enhanced both my life experience and fulfilled a desire for deeper personal meaning. Prior to my training I worked as a company director based in London for twenty-five years.

Continued Professional Development

I have an on-going personal commitment to continued professional development as part of my own core beliefs as well as a requirement of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Ethical Framework. I believe in working to professional standards and keeping myself informed about the latest developments in the field.
