My first qualification in counselling was back in 1989. In the early 1990s I trained as a CCI group facilitator and in 1996 received my first post graduate qualification as a counselor at UEL.
I recently deepened my practise through further post graduate training at the Psychosynthesis Trust, a form of counselling grounded in yoga philosophy. In 2014 I completed my Positive Psychology Msc research into mystical experience of Pranayama practitioners, which continues to support my counselling practise as well as pranayama teaching. At the moment I am studying with Ryan Niemiec, learning how to integrate Character Strengths and mindfulness into our lives to improve well being and reduce suffering. As a member of BACP my counselling work receives ongoing supervision.
If you feel counselling might be for you at this time, email me to say something about your concerns and we can discuss arranging an initial session (email@example.com).
