My Background Training and Experience

I have grown up with psychology since my late teens, gaining a BScHons degree in the subject from Brunel University. However I decided to balance my academic interest in the subject with working in the real world by declining the offer of a PhD studentship and starting my own business. At the same time I continued my involvement in practical psychology, participating in and running a variety of “personal growth” events in London. Over a number of years, I also experienced working one-to-one with several different well-known London therapists. This all amounted to an integrative experience of the main schools and approaches in psychotherapy.

In 1989 I began my formal training as a psychotherapist at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London, one of the largest psychotherapy training colleges in the country, and qualified in 1992 with a post-graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling. During this period, and for some time afterwards, I ran grass-roots counselling training events and provided voluntary counselling for people who were close to death as well as beginning to establish my own private practice.

I have been working full-time as a psychotherapist since 1995 and currently have a private practice in counselling and psychotherapy, working with individuals and couples. I also have a teaching and training role at CCPE which I have held for the last twenty years.

My foundations are in the different schools of therapy as they have evolved and I continue to engage with the changing ethos of therapy today and how it is delivered - particularly regarding the modern ethical and technological developments of recent years. However, my interest in psychotherapy is not merely an intellectual one - psychotherapy/counselling are practical tools to turn the inner pain of our lives to the service of attaining maturity and wellbeing.

I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and am a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
