I am registered as a psychotherapist with the Humanistic and Integrative College (HIPC) and as a counsellor with the Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Intersubjective College (PCIPC) of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and abide to its Code of Ethics and Professional Practice. I was initially registered with UKCP via the Member Organisation UK Association for Humanistic Psychology with whom I was also accredited but am now a Direct Member of UKCP. Since 1997, I am also a UKCP registered supervisor of counsellors and psychotherapists.
I also have degrees in psychology, and teach psychology, counselling and psychotherapy with the Open University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, and am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and of its Psychotherapy and Transpersonal Psychology Sections.
More recently, my longstanding interest in environmental psychology led me to become a member of the Climate Psychology Alliance and to facilitate Climate Cafés. These areas reflect my commitment to psychological healing in its widest sense. This includes the wellbeing benefits from connecting with nature and the impact on life meaning from nature-depletion and loss of species, and the far-reaching consequences to wellbeing and mental health from the climate and nature crises.
