I work in private practice with individuals and also couples on a short, medium or long term basis. I have worked in the field of Counselling and Psychotherapy since the mid 1990’s, and most of the website is devoted to this part of my work. My professional Registration means that I meet the standards laid down by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and am committed to working within their Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct. See the 'About me' page for more information.
I am also a Creative Group Facilitator, and lead Workshops and Retreats on various themes including Creativity & Imagination, Psychological awareness & Personal Growth, Spirituality and Playfulness. Go to the 'Groups' page for more information on any forthcoming events. In my free time I am an enthusiastic amateur artist. I love using paint to explore themes of sea, sky and land, and find the process exhilarating and frustrating in almost equal measure. I exhibit occasionally in various places; and am currently exhibiting my paintings, prints and cards as part of Warwickshire Open Studios, which ends on Sunday 3 July. For more information, go to my Artwork page listed above, where you can also see a few examples of my paintings.
