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.
I’m also a trainer in suicide prevention (in person and online) for Grassroots, a Brighton and Hove based charity specialising in suicide prevention, delivering safeTALK and also Real Talk courses.
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.
