I work with clients with a wide range of issues, which vary from an undefinable feeling that “something is missing” in their lives, to dealing with the devastating impact of major loss, abuse or early childhood trauma.
I believe that being valued as a person, without being judged, is an important part of the process by which an individual can find a way to discover and accept who they are, and reconnect with themselves.
Clients have described my counselling style as creating a gentle tranquil space in their lives where they feel heard and understood, and where it feels safe for them to explore and resolve their deepest fears and anxieties.

Training, qualifications & experience
I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor with a post graduate diploma in humanistic and integrative counselling. I am also a course tutor at the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC), a registered member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I hold a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling BCPC, 2011 and a Foundation Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling, 2001. I am also a supervisor in training with CSTD (Centre for Supervision and Team Development) and I am endorsed by CTSD to provide low cost supervision to students, counsellors and psychotherapists. I regularly attend continuing professional development (CPD) training courses and events in order to advance my learning.
My early career was spent in the business world when I travelled and worked in many countries overseas. Before I completed my counselling training I worked extensively with organisations in England and Scotland providing care and support for families with children who had previously been homeless. My wife and I are also former foster carers.
