I am a registered psychotherapist with the Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College (HIPC) of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and abide by its Code of Ethics and Professional Practice. I was initially registered via the Member Organisation UK Association for Humanistic Psychology with whom I was also accredited but am now a Direct Member of UKCP via HIPC. I am also on the UKCP register of supervisors for counsellors and psychotherapists and am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and of its Psychotherapy and Transpersonal Psychology Sections (or Spiritual Psychology, which is the same thing).

I taught psychology, counselling and psychotherapy with the Open University’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences until retiring from my role in 2022 to give more time to psychotherapy, consultancy, being in nature and writing. With this aim, I am currently near completion of a book Ventures into Deep Imagination: Celtic Mythology, Nature’s Year, and the Quest for Soul. This is an in-depth transit through the year with weekly contemplations and practices inspired by the Celts to nurture mature spirituality.
