My style and approach
Prior to qualifying as a counsellor, I worked as a musician and music teacher. In my work both as a teacher and as a counsellor, I believe in every individual's right to be heard as well as in their potential to develop and grow, and I see my role as providing a safe, supportive and encouraging space for this to happen.
Psychosynthesis, the psychological model which informs my work, has the capacity to help us understand ourselves and the things that keep us stuck, and to find ways of expressing our true self.
Qualifications and Training
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis & Education Trust (PET), validated by University of East London, and I have completed a two-year specialist post-graduate training in Creative Couplework Relationship Therapy, with the Centre for Gender Psychology.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and as such I adhere to their Ethical Framework, which includes having regular professional supervision. I hold full professional indemnity insurance.
I continue to give singing lessons, and performing and listening to music play an important part in my life. I have
worked abroad and in London, before moving to Herefordshire. I am married and have two grown-up children.
