I have been practising as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 1992 and 1996 respectively, and am registered with the Humanistic and Integrative College (HIPC) of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). My practice is informed by humanistic, transpersonal, Jungian, contemplative and neurobiological perspectives and understandings.
I am also a practising supervisor (since 1995) and am on the UKCP Register of Supervisors.
Alongside my therapy practice in Edinburgh and near Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, I offer in-depth personal and professional development workshops, explorations, and courses in transpersonal psychology (often called “spiritual psychology”), am a psychology tutor with the Open University and am a member of the British Psychological Society.
My most recent book Resource Focused Counselling and Psychotherapy (which looks at increasing client strength and capacity) was published by Routledge (March, 2017). My co-authored book Creative Ethical Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy was published by Sage in 2012.
