I have worked in the NHS for 16 years - fourteen as a practice counsellor
in a local GP practice and two as a supervisor of other therapists in a Community Mental Health team. I
also worked in Relate for fourteen years.
Prior to all that I trained as a Mental health social worker, and taught
in Wormwood Scrubs prison.
In 1998, I set up in a private practice in a small way in Trowbridge, and
now this has expanded into seeing most of my clients there. I also offer supervision to practicing counsellors and
work as a supervisor in two addiction agencies.
My Relate background was in short term therapy and also in systemic
therapy, looking at the whole person in their environment.
