I am registered as a psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and as a counsellor and counselling trainer with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).


I have worked as a counsellor since 1992 and as a psychotherapist since 1994. I have extensive experience of counselling in York NHS Trust where I worked in the Clinical Psychology Department, in local GP surgeries and on the staff support network. I also have experience of counselling with Relate.

As a supervisor I have considerable experience of supervising individuals and groups. Supervisees have worked in the voluntary and statutory sectors and in private practice. I have supervised people at many different stages of professional development.

I currently work as a core trainer on the HE Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Leeds Metropolitan University. In this capacity I provide training for people who want to qualify as counsellors. I have worked on this course since 1999. I have contributed to many other professional training programmes.

I also work as an associate trainer for an organisation called Witness (Against Abuse by Health and Care Workers). In this role I have provided training on professional boundaries for the Health Professions Council and various Social Care Councils.
