" Patient man ride donkey"

                                 ( Jamaican Proverb )



My counselling practice has at its foundation a humanistic/person centred

approach and I am able to integrate other approaches, including CBT into

my work according to my clients/supervisees needs.


Having many years experience of working with young people and adults on the

margins of society who present with a broad range of challenging issues I work

Intuitively and interactively and have a strong connectedness with others.


I have attended regular training courses as part of my ongoing personal

development, many of which have been 2/3 days residentials.  I have regular

Supervision with a qualified supervisor/therapist and am a registered member of BACP with personal liability insurance. I have a Diploma in Counselling(Awarding Body Sheffield University) and a Post graduate Diploma in Supervision (Awarding Body Temenos in Sheffield).
