 UKRCP. BACP Accredited Senior Dips Couns, Supervisor, Psychotherapist.

  I am a highly skilled Senior Accredited Counsellor and Counselling Supervisor with twenty years experience of working with a wide range of clients within the Third Sector and other organisations such as the P.C.T. Connexions, G.P. Surgeries, Schools, private practice and I am an associate counsellor with Derbyshire County Council, Retail Trust, Red Arc and Oldham Psychological Services. I also provide E.A.P. work for various organisations. I now work in private practice.

I work in an eclectic way which enables me to draw from a range of theories that will facilitate greater and richer outcomes.  

The training and experience that I have gained over the years has given me knowledge and understanding of an eclectic range of theories, techniques and applications such as Gestalt and C.B.T. with the Person-Centred model underpinning my work.

My training began in September 1998 where I received my first taste of the world of therapy.

It was during the introduction to counselling that I realized  that Psychotherapy and Counselling was the path that I wanted to take.

  During the next four years and three residential weekends, I invested a lot of time and energy into developing my skills and learning my new profession.
