About me: I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I trained as a social worker in the early 1970s, and then as a counsellor in the mid-1980s. When I am not working as a counsellor I am involved with friends in community work, including running a free counselling service in Hitchin, Herts and some international aid work in India.
Experience: I have been in private practice for 30 years, and have also been a counsellor in the NHS. I have been a psychological therapist in a hospice, and a staff counsellor in a university. My specialist trainings include:
- working with the dying and the bereaved;
- workplace stress;
- couples and relationships;
- sexuality & sexual orientation;
- adoption counselling;
- family mediation;
I am an accredited sexual minorities therapist, a registered adoption counsellor and I work with individuals and couples.
Supervision: I currently work as a clinical supervisor to nurses and medical staff in two NHS hospitals, and offer counselling supervision to qualified and trainee counsellors.
