My theoretical background is a mixture of person-centred and psychodynamic training. I work in a way that combines both and I therefore see myself as an integrative therapist. I have worked in a variety of settings, both with couples and individuals. I have been on a crisis telephone counselling helpline and have worked in a bereavement centre.
I have worked with clients referred by their GP's in time-limited work and with those that have self referred on an open-ended basis. As I am listed on several EAP registers I also see clients that have been referred by their employers. Furthermore, I hold a certificate in clinical supervision that allows me to work with colleagues regarding their own client work.
My specialist area concerns fertility issues and assisted conception treatments. As such I am an accredited member of British Infertility Counselling Association (BICA).
I am committed to ongoing personal and professional development, as exemplified in the many workshops I have undertaken. These include workshops about infertility, Loss and attachment, psychosexual issues, couples counselling, sexuality and other minority group issues, and cognitive behavioural therapy.
I am currently Secretary of the BICA Executive Committee.
