I gained my post-graduate professional qualification at the Metanoia Institute in West London.
I hold the Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy (Distinction).
I have been working in counselling and psychotherapy for around 35 years.
I gained my doctorate in a medical school and built up work experience in various health-related contexts such as hospitals, general practice and hospices. This included experience in management and directorial roles in a large London hospice where I worked for 12 years. During that time, I set up a children’s bereavement service and strengthened the counselling services available to both patients and their families.
Through this life-time study, I have gained a particular understanding and empathy with people who are suffering illness conditions as well as those who have the responsibility for caring.
Specialist training and experience
Over the years I have gained an understanding of the long-term impact on an adult of neglect and abuse in childhood. I am concerned about ongoing domestic abuse and I am a professional supervisor for a voluntary organisation supporting abuse victims.
I have a good understanding of the stresses and strains of study. This has been acquired through working with a lot of students and professional trainees over the years. I have observed the many pressures that they encounter, and not just with the demands of study and assessment.
I offer research advice and support services to both individuals and organisations.
Some 25 years ago, I gained an additional qualification as a counselling supervisor. I am active in providing clinical supervision for both individuals and several groups.
A next step?
I like to think my training and experience is broad-based. My Integrative training helps work with a number of models of counselling. This has taught me the value of speaking with potential clients in a free, initial consultation. Then we can discuss carefully what they require. I like to explore how they might want to work and what is a most appropriate response to their particular issues.
I work with Robin. Although we both work in the therapy world, I think it fair to say we work in different ways as, indeed, do most therapists.
