Biography

After a successful first career in IT, I spent seven years training for my second career as a psychotherapist and counsellor. I qualified as a counsellor in 1996 and as a psychotherapist and group worker in 1998, after which I finally gave up IT to focus fully on my second career as a psychotherapist, counsellor and group worker. I have since run a private psychotherapy and counselling practice in Maidenhead, as well as being a facilitator on personal development courses.

I trained to be a psychotherapist and group worker at The Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. Psychosynthesis is a mainstream psychology, concerned with the impact of past experiences upon the present. At the same time, Psychosynthesis is a psychospiritual psychology, concerned with the future, what may be emerging in a person’s life, its purpose, meaning and values.

From 2005 to 2012 I worked as a course tutor at The Institute of Psychosynthesis. In addition, I am a professional storyteller, a member of Equity, and sometimes weave stories and poems into my work as a psychotherapist.

Between 2011 and 2013 I undertook a Shamanic Practitioner Training at the Eagle’s Wing School of Contemporary Shamanism. Please, click ‘Soulfulness‘ for details of my Soulfulness Shamanic Practice.
