Background

My interest in counselling arose from a role in pastoral care and a conviction that I should train and thereby support people more effectively. 25 years later I have worked in several counselling settings both on a voluntary basis and as my career. I enjoy supporting clients to find solutions and to recognise connections that help make sense of their life experiences.

Qualifications

Experience

My earlier experience was in a pastoral/spiritual setting, in which faith was involved in understanding people’s experiences. A period of working with alcohol addiction helped me to grapple with issues for which there is no simple answer and where sustained support is often required. For the past 20 years my focus has been on supporting people who access counselling through workplace counselling arrangements, and who need to focus on addressing issues within a few focussed sessions. I enjoy working within both short-term and longer-term counselling contracts.
