I came into counselling, probably far too young, in my 20s. However, I was lucky that, by chance, I went to the iconic South West London Counselling Course, run in those days by Bridget Proctor and Pat Milner. As a result, I became reasonably sure that this was the right profession for me, and when I left London, in 1986, I became a full-time counsellor, and a part-time lecturer in counselling and related activities.
Since then, I have researched and written about multi-cultural counselling, and have written three information leaflets for BACP, on Making the Contract, Fit to Practice, and Charging for Therapy, and have presented at conferences both in the UK and abroad.
My real interest in ethics is for Professional Conduct, or applied ethics and I chair Professional Conduct Panels.
I continue to work in private practice, and am also a Senior Lecturer in Counselling Studies at the University of Huddersfield.
