My Therapy Experience

I am a BACP Registered and Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Senior Accredited Supervisor and Group Facilitator. I have been counselling and supervising for over 30 years in various settings including: two drug and alcohol agencies where I worked with children and adults on their own addiction or if they were affected by a family member’s addiction issues; two Further Education, and two Higher Education colleges where I worked with both students and staff; in private practice working both short term and longer term with clients, including twice weekly psychotherapy; as a Staff Counsellor and Staff Counselling Manager in two NHS hospitals; as the Staff Counselling Manager at Cardiff University for 10 years; and currently in full time private practice.

As you can see I have considerable experience in working with a diverse range of clients from young people living in inner cities with physical and emotional deprivations, to consultants working in the NHS, to senior academics facing the challenges of the changing face of academia, to those suffering with depression and anxiety, work life balance issues, bereavement, relationship issues, pain and illness.
