About me

I am a Person-Centered Jungian, counselling supervisor and psychotherapist with 25 years experience in psycho-education and therapy.

I have trained counsellors, written for the BACP (articles in Therapy Today and authored the information sheet G8) and am an accredited supervisor for the Metanoia Person Centered Diploma/B.A. I also sat on the UKAHPP Ethics committee.

Testimonials from clients

Working with Steve was amazing and very helpful. He gave me the tools that I needed to be able to unravel and understand myself and what a relief it is to have a deeper understanding of me. Ive now completely let go of negative things that I was holding on to and that I was unnecessarily blaming myself for. I now have a greater understanding of myself and how I can create a more peaceful enjoyable and fulfilling future for myself. I met Steve feeling full of pain and despair and I left him feeling calm, peaceful and excited about my future. Truly amazing.N.W.

One of the great things about Steve is that he harbours an atmosphere whereby mistakes or saying things you may not mean entirely is OK and even productive!           E.O.

"Therapy made a profound difference in my life, the open and compassionate environment induced by my therapist was a breath of fresh air. It allowed me to look deep inside myself and comfortably explore things that I was trying to evade and move forward." T.F.

Training, qualifications & experience

I originally trained in Person Centred Therapy, recently completed a Master's degree in Jungian Psychotherapy and am currently furthering my training in Advanced Integrative Therapy. I have experience with young people, asylum seekers and refugees and a keen interest in the transmission and healing of trauma.

A.I.T (Advanced Integrative Therapy - formerly known as Seemorg Matrix Therapy) is a new 'energy therapy' that combines ancient healing techniques with a synthesis of modern neuro-linguistics and traditional psychoanalytic insight. I can work specifically in this modality to address distinct trauma or, occasionally, offer it as an additional technique within a classical therapy relationship.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am also interested in peoples spirituality and how their particular faith, belief or absence of, impacts upon their life.

Further information

See my website to get a fuller feel of whether I am the right sort of therapist for you.

I was accredited by being a full member of the Independent Practitioners 027242_logo.jpgNetwork for over ten years - this is an on-going peer-reviewed process that far exceeds the requirements of BACP or UKCP accreditation.

UPDATE: Since some recent changes in the professional landscape I have resigned from UKAHPP and am now a direct registrant with UKCP. See my website for more discussion on what accreditation might mean to you..
