About me

I am a registered ukcp intergrative psychotherapist with over 20 years post qualifying experience.
am also a qualified supervisor and trainer of counsellors.

I have taught on diploma level counselling courses for over 15 years and presently teach on a diploma in therapeutic counselling in Redditch.

I provide training to organisations on many counselling related issues and offer clinical supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists. I also offer group supervision to both organisations and groups of private counsellors & psychotherapists.

I have had considerable experience working with survivors of abuse and trauma and with issues around sexuality and have also provided training locally and nationally and internationally in these areas. I have also worked extensively with stress related distress and issues of self esteem and confidence. I also work with couples on relationship and psychosexual issues, and I integrate aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy when appropriate.

I have extensive experience working therapeutically with young people. I run a counselling service at a Birmingham 6th form college and am the external counsellor for an independent school in Worcestershire.

I am based in Alvechurch which is in between Birmingham and Redditch, a 3 minute drive from junction 3 M42 My practice is easily accessible from Worcestershire, Warwickshire and West Midlands

I usually have a waiting list for psychotherapy and supervision but it does depend on your availability.
