I am keen to support others, to help them be their best selves (professionally and personally).
This includes other therapists and supervisors, as well as my clients.
I previously spent three years with The Academy for Online Counselling & Psychotherapy designing and delivering successful ACTO-approved Certificate and Diploma courses for therapists and supervisors to help them explore what the online world has to offer – safely and ethically.
More recently, I’ve been developing a series of stand-alone workshops independently.
My other local involvement has included undertaking the role of volunteer counsellor at St Barnabas House (our local hospice in Worthing) for 6½ years. During this time I worked with various clients (1:1 and in groups). These included people who were bereaved, and others who were facing the prospect of their own death or bereavement because a friend or family member had been given a terminal diagnosis and who also might also have been struggling with a new role as carer for someone whose health was deteriorating.
And I have volunteered since 2007 at our local charity focusing on the homeless: Turning Tides (previously Worthing Churches Homeless Projects), preparing and serving meals.
