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 trained and experienced supervisor and am on the UKCP Register of Supervisors.
I currently practise in the West End of Edinburgh (EH1) and in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland (TD15).
Alongside my therapy practice I offer in-depth personal and professional development workshops, explorations, and courses in transpersonal psychology and the deep imagination (also embodied imagination or embodied imagery). While most of my workshops take place in England and Scotland, I have also facilitated workshops in Italy, Germany and Belgium. I am also a tutor with the Open University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, 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.
