I am a BACP accredited psychotherapist and counsellor with 20 years experience (199 6), working in private practice. I work from home on the outskirts of Rugeley, bordering the Trent & Mersey Canal and overlooking fields on either side of the River Trent.
I am a qualified Family Counsellor (1998). You may be concerned over your child's behaviour and wonder how best to deal with it. I may be able to advice you and work with you, or with you and your youngster, or your teenager, to create a more balanced family life.
I qualified as a Relationships and Couples Counsellor (2015) and work with couples as well as parent/ child, and with siblings. Relationships issues can affect many more than only couples or partners.
I am a qualified Supervisor (2009), providing supervision for trainee counsellors as well as newly qualified and more experienced therapists. As a former teacher and school governor, school counsellors are very welcome. I am also a Consultant Supervisor for supervisors as recommended in the new BACP Ethical Framework.
I have a Diploma in CBT and am recognised by BUPA as a provider of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
