With 40 years of counselling experience, the range of presenting problems I have encountered is wide. My primary therapeutic interests now are couples and autism, especially both together! I am known for my clear thinking and expression. Influenced by a former insurance career, I enjoy crafting plain English.
Therapeutically, I endeavour to help clients to find just the right words to express their feelings. I was first Accredited in 1989 and started offering Clinical Supervision to counsellors soon after. In the ’90s, I was an Assessor of Accreditation for BACP.
I am a founder member, and past or current board member, of British and International counselling Associations. I have worked for charitable voluntary counselling organisations. I have been affiliated to most British Employee Assistance Programme Schemes and am now a Director of Counselling Works Ltd, which I founded in 2002.
