About Me

I am a Counsellor & Psychotherapist in private practice based in the City of Worcester.    Between 1991 and 2003 I was employed by the NHS as a primary care counsellor, working within 3 GP surgeries in Worcester City.   I have had a private practice for over 12 years.

I am a registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).  I am also registered as a Primary Care Counsellor with the national Association of Primary Care Counsellors and Psychotherapists (CPC), an accredited EMDR Psychotherapist (EMDR Assoc. UK & Ireland) .

I am also in a business partnership  with a local colleague to provide high quality psychology & psychotherapy training to local counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists (WTTN)

I have  been involved in a national working party organised by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) looking at ‘management standards for work-related stress’, and Worcestershire County Council Education Department’s ‘Healthy Schools’ project.

I am a registered Service Provider for the following organisations;

Worcestershire County Council

My Counselling theoretical Perspective

Although my core theoretical training is that of ‘Person-Centred Counselling’, I consider myself an Integrative therapist as I assimilate a number of theories, concepts and models from numerous psychotherapeutic paradigms.   I have undertaken specific training in the following psychotherapeutic approaches;

Person Centred Counselling

Psychodynamic Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Systemic Family Therapy

Transactional Analysis (TA)

NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP)

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Constellations Theory


Eye Movement, Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR)

I am an accredited EMDR Psychotherapist (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) and an EMDR Europe Approved Consultant

This technique has been found to be of significant benefit to those suffering trauma, particularly post traumatic stress.   The National institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recently published guidelines on the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in which they recommend EMDR as a treatment of choice.



I have professional memberships of the following organisations and as such abide by their particular codes of practice and ethics;

Registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

Registered Member of Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists in Primary Care (CPC)

Accredited member of EMDR Association UK & Ireland

Professional Member of Midlands Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling (MIIPC)

Registered member of United Kingdom Psychological Trauma Society (UKPTS)
