About me and my therapy practice

My main area of work is with young people, I work in two High Schools however I also work privately with adults and young people. I have worked within the area of psychology since the 1990’s. I was trained in hostage negotiation and crisis intervention and worked in this area for 10 years. I have dealt with numerous hostage/kidnap situations and many suicide interventions. It was whilst carrying out this work that my interest in psychotherapy and counselling was augmented. I am a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist and presently provide service to a number of employee assistance programmes, the NHS and private companies. I have also trained in mediation, life coaching and critical incident debriefing; I am also qualified to diploma level in hypnotherapy.
