I have been a therapist for over fifteen years.
I started my private practice in 2009 and I have now worked with many hundreds of people who have wanted to change or process something about themselves or their life stories.
Issues that I have worked with include: anxiety and depression, bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties, work-related stress, serious illness, addictions and compulsive behaviours, personal and transpersonal development, identity, spiritual awakening, and neurodivergence.
I was also a volunteer counsellor at the Fountain Centre at Royal Surrey County Hospital for five years where I worked with cancer patients and their families as well as members of hospital staff.
Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
For most of my early professional life I was a freelance computer programmer.
In 1994 I co-founded the world's first internet recruitment service JobServe. By 2000 JobServe was top of the Sunday Times Profit Track 100 league table and in 2001 the company was the first “dot com” business to receive a Queen's Award for Enterprise.
I retired from the computer industry in 2001.
In 2002 I spent 28 days in a “rehab” treatment centre for alcohol addiction. I have now been “in recovery” for over 21 years.
Prior to training as a counsellor I was a volunteer with the Brigitte Trust providing emotional support and practical help to people and their families facing the challenges of cancer and other life-limiting conditions.
