Accessing frequent and varied learning opportunities keeps my counselling and supervision practice alive and vibrant. I am deeply committed to my ongoing personal and professional development and to that of others.
I bring many years’ experience of working with a range of professional groups and student learners in higher education, training, consultancy and team building contexts. I regularly co-facilitate workshops and courses to health and care professionals through intandem and with therapists at City Lit. Key topics include supervision, person centred counselling and creative counselling skills. I was a Primary Tutor on the BA (Hons)/Diploma in Person Centred Counselling at Metanoia Institute from Sept 2017 to Aug 2020 and have been a member of the Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (PCE-CfD) team there since 2021.
In an independent capacity, I also work closely with a number of NHS Trusts and independent organisations to offer emotional support and counselling skills training courses as part of a wider multi-professional CPD programme. I am always keen to widen my network, so you are welcome to contact me to discuss possible ways we can work together.
I aim to facilitate a co-operative, mutual, learning environment. I consider training to be a collaborative process, to which we both bring different skills, knowledge and perspectives.
I endeavour to respond to individual learning styles and make explicit links between theory and practice. In particular, I value experiential learning as a means of deepening understanding and practice as well as supporting your development as a reflective practitioner.
