I qualified as a psychotherapist in 1999, my roles have included clinical director in a residential psychotherapy centre, maintaining a private practice, and designing and delivering many personal development group programmes. I also tutored on a psychotherapy degree course, where I designed and delivered the creative therapies module and facilitated humanistic and self development groups.
Following my core counselling and pychotherapy training I completed certificates in couples counselling, advanced CBT, mindfulness approaches, group therapy, gestalt process, sand therapy, and integrative bodywork.
My training in many models pre and post qualification enables me to adapt the work to the client. Clients can use ‘talk therapy’ to express and make sense of their issues and/or make use of creative or somatic ways of accessing resources. I often describe therapy as ‘facilitating people to get out of their own way’.
