Professional Memberships and Activities
Member of the British association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
As a therapist, I work with adolescents (as a school counsellor), and with adults in private practice. I have considerable experience of working with survivors of child sexual abuse. My therapeutic approach is integrative, using Personal Construct Psychotherapy as my orienting framework. I facilitate a number of personal development groups, and have a particular interest in Group Analysis.
I am interested in what motivates people to train in therapeutic work, and how the training process impacts upon them and their relationships.
I teach across a wide spectrum of courses, all involving counselling approaches to psychology including:
BSc Psychology and Counselling degree
The University Certificate in Counselling
The Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling
