My Experience

I started working as a therapist in 1995. Prior to this I had worked as a teacher for thirteen years following a degree in Philosophy and a post graduate qualification in education.

As a therapist I have worked in the NHS, in private practice, in student counselling, in employee support within organisations, in addiction counselling and as a counselling trainer and supervisor.

I have worked with clients of various ages, cultures and ethnic backgrounds.

I am very experienced in doing thorough assessments and helping clients into the best therapeutic route available to them.

 I have experience in both short term, solution focused counselling, telephone counselling and longer term, open ended counselling or psychotherapy. I have worked as a supervisor of other counsellors in two different organisational settings. I have also provided training for both trainee and qualified counsellors within an organisational setting. In addition I see counsellors for supervision in my private practice.
