AREAS OF SPECIALISATION
I have many years of experience of working with children, young people, adults, couples and groups, with all nature of problems and concerns including post traumatic stress, anger management, depression, bullying, and relationship problems.
My work is integrative and informed by a wide cross-section of theoretical concepts and approaches. However, my main influence is a Humanistic approach which believes in the inherent self-healing ability of every human being. Some of us just need a bit of guidance and support in tapping into this which is where the psychotherapist comes in useful.
Until recently I have been a Co Director of the Diploma Course at The Institute For Arts in Therapy and Education which attracts a large intake of eager students every year because of its multi arts approach which makes this training particularly rich and UNIQUE in the field of psychotherapy. From 2008 I have been Co Directing the Counselling skills Training Course which incorporates the therapeutic use of the Arts, under The Child Centre for Mental Health(CCMH) banner.To visit CCMH justCLICK HERE to go straight to it.This particular Certificate Course is aimed at anyone working with children and /or adolescents who wants to build on their skills.
More recently I have joined the team of Equine Affinity which is an organisation doing innovative therapeutic work involving horses in the therapeutic process. For more information on this CLICK HERE.
I also offer Supervision, Training and Consultation.
