My training, work experience and any achievement


I have worked in human services for most of my life. I started as a teacher and then worked with young, unemployed people. Following this I supported people with learning disabilities and those affected by long-term neurological conditions and brain injuries. I gained enormous experience with people from a diverse range of backgrounds and those struggling to make sense of complete changes in their lives.​ Working closely with people who have become disabled or been affected by long-term health conditions has played a major role in my career over many years resulting in assisting individuals to return to work or find meaningful alternatives to work.

Following a recommendation from someone I supported, I started training in counselling, gaining a diploma in person centred counselling in 1992. Since then I have widened my knowledge and skills by training in Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, NLP and Adlerian Therapy. I have also undertaken training in trauma, anger, creative visualisation, personal relationships & sexuality, and solution focused brief therapy. I would now describe myself as an integrative, relational counsellor.I gained accreditation from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2009 and operate under their ethical guidelines

I gained a certificate in supervision in 2012 and am now able to supervise other counsellors and a wide range of other professionals who work with individuals or groups.

I am trained and experienced in dealing with problem anger both to groups and individuals

My training and experience have led me to develop the following specialities: return to work; disability & long-term health conditions; personal relationships & sexuality; relationship issues; anger; stress; anxiety; trauma as well as general counselling.

Currently I am a volunteer with Compass Counselling Agency, have my own private practice, offer supervision and co-facilitate training in understanding and managing anger.
