brief, I have over eighteen years experience as a counsellor and
psychotherapist in private practice; during that time I have also
worked as a University student and staff counsellor and a RELATE
counsellor. See my profile for more details and a summary of my
trainings. Since 1994 I have also been an EAP counsellor, which
means that I have been selected to provide counselling for the
employees of a large number of major companies based in (or with
branches in) the East Midlands. As a counsellor trainer for the
last ten years, I have gained many more insights for myself, both
theoretical and practical. As a clinical supervisor
of many other therapists since 1988 I have increased my understanding
of a vast range of client concerns and therapeutic responses.
I work to the highest possible professional and ethical standards
in all aspects of my practice.
I have two accreditations by the BACP, one as a practitioner and
the other as a trainer. This is the highest level of practitioner
licensing currently available for counsellors in the UK.
am available for professional development consultation for those
wishing to explore strengths and weaknesses, blocks and areas
for development within their personal and professional role as
a teacher. By working together, it would be our aim to clarify
issues and build personal strengths to increase resilience in
what can sometimes feel an overly 'giving' position. We would,
through a range of strategies, seek to strengthen and enhance
your professional role as a teacher / facilitator.
