About me

I have over 25 years of experience of helping people grow and develop.

I have come to realise that achieving what we want from life is closely related to how we feel about ourselves. Understanding how we are - how we respond to what life throws at us - often requires a deeper exploration. So after many years in organisational and leadership development, I trained in counselling/psychotherapy, and have continued to learn, study and experience. This has included person-centred, psychodynamic, transactional analysis, and existential approaches.

Previously, I have been an independent development facilitator and coach, working with individuals, teams and major commercial, public and non-profit organisations.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualifications include a Masters in Counselling & Psychotherapy from the University of Stirling, a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Edinburgh, and an Advanced Certificate in Coaching & Mentoring from CIPD/OSCM.

I am committed to continuous professional development and participated in 32 hours of CPD over the last year. This included sessions on the Transference-Countertransference Relationship, Embodied Mindfulness, and PTSD from an Attachment Perspective, Working with Drugs & Alcohol, and Understanding Anger.

I have been an independent development facilitator and coach for 15 years, working with individuals and teams in commercial, public and non-profit organisations.

I also have an MBA from the University of Edinburgh and a BSc in Materials Science from the University of Sussex.
