I am a Certified Transactional Analyst (UKCP registered) and a MBACP (Snr. Accredited) therapist, with over 20 years’ experience. I have lectured on higher education diploma and degree courses (validated by University of Plymouth).
I am also the author of “Anger, Rage and Relationship: An Empathic Approach to Anger Management (Routledge, 2008).” The book was written with clients and mental health professionals in mind and was the culmination of years of practice and study into the differences between anger and rage and how to work with them.
Potential clients can refer themselves or are referred by a wide range of statutory and voluntary agencies including GP surgeries, Employee Assistance Programmes and the Health Service.
I am a supervisor of practitioners (individual and groups) helping a diverse client population.
I continue to run regular events nationwide, which support counsellors and psychotherapists to work with anger, rage and shame in their practice. More recently, I have developed ‘Relational Mindfulness’ a form of mindfulness which is embedded in the therapeutic relationship. I am also delivering one day CPD trainings to share my approach with counsellors and psychotherapists throughout the UK.
