About me

I am an experienced Psychotherapist / Counsellor and Supervisor with a Practice in St Albans, where I work with adults on a short or long term basis, according to need. Sessions last one hour and take place in my consulting room, a 'safe space' of trust, warmth, and confidentiality. My orientation is Transpersonal, which is a perspective that believes that we are more than the contents of our personalities; it is holistic, treating you as a whole person rather than as a collection of symptoms or problems. My role is to help activate your self-healing capacities mainly via talking, but possibly by creative visualisation, writing, free drawing, painting - whatever works best for you. Before becoming a counsellor I spent 20 years in commerce. I have a broad range of interests and experience and am particularly keen on outdoor pursuits such as mountain biking, scuba diving, motorcycling and walking my dog! In quieter moments I like to meditate, read, listen to music or visit the local pub.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and Supervisor and am a Member of CTP (Centre for Transpersonal Psychology) and a Registered Member of BACP and am subject to their codes of ethics. I have a Certificate and Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Psychotherapy from CTP - see www.transpersonalcentre.co.uk. I work for a number of Employee Assistance Programmes as well as having my own Practice in St Albans. I work with adults, either individuals or couples. I am a Trainer and Supervisor for Cruse Bereavement Care and for Mind and also Supervise counsellors on a private basis. I have experience working with addictions through contract counselling for the Peripatetic Alcohol Counselling and Therapy Service (PACTS) in Welwyn Garden City and St Albans and with another alcohol support service, HAPAS, in Hertford and St Albans. I am a Tutor at West Herts College on the Counselling Diploma and Supervisors course and run Anger Management courses for Mind and Supervision training for Cruse.

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

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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

My practice room is on the 2nd floor so is unsuitable for those with mobility issues.
