Counselling and Social Work Experience

I am a Member of and Registered with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I am also registered with hcpc health and care professionals council and I am an Affiliate of ASART Adoption Support Agency of Registered Therapists.

I have been involved in adoption and fostering both personally and professionally for over thirty five years and I have a passionate interest in promoting healthy attachments between children and families. For the last seven and a half years I have been involved in designing, developing and delivering a hugely successful national therapeutic training programme for parents and professionals. This training programme was developed in response to adoptive parents requests for practical ways to help them to address and manage children’s challenging behaviours. I use Theraplay® techniques in my work with children and families.

I am a qualified counsellor and supervisor and I have run a successful private practice for the last twelve years. I am trained in both Person Centred and Psychodynamic approaches.
I have experience as a Mediator through working for the Special Educational Needs Disagreement Resolution Service. I also counselled children in schools for the Lancashire Education Inclusion Service and I supervise a number of counsellors who work in schools.
