About me

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist working in this field since qualifying in 1987. I am also a counselling supervisor, trainer and mediator offering individual, couple and parent and child counselling, supervision and mediation services at my practices in Beaconsfield (Bucks) and Northwood (Middlesex). In addition to my private practice the settings in which I have worked include schools, Further and Higher Education, Feltham Young Offender Institution, Hounslow Youth Counselling Service, ICAS, GP surgeries and Critical Incident De-Briefing for several major companies.

I have 15 years experience as a supervisor and about half my practice is the supervision of counsellors and psychotherapists. I facilitate a monthly series of workshops for counsellors and those in the helping professions at The Grail in Pinner and at the New Jordans Conference Centre in Buckinghamshire. I also provide training for students and staff in schools.

I trained as a Person-Centred Counsellor and although I remain firmly anchored in the way of being and philosophy of the Person-Centred Approach I have broadened and deepened my understanding and beliefs about the human condition through training, reading and personal development which would lead me to describe myself as an Integrative Humanistic Practitioner. I embrace Focusing, Inner Child, Gestalt, TA, EMDR and Dream and Soul Work in my practice (please see web site for further details) and have a particular interest in working with men around issues of masculinity, 'The Little Boy Within' and 'Mid-Life Crisis'.
