I worked for many years as an Educational Psychologist, which was a rewarding job, helping children, young people, their families and teachers.
I continue to develop as a person and counsellor through my own personal therapy and supervision. This includes exploring and challenging my own privilege and prejudices. I try to be aware of how others might see me based on their experience of other middle class, white, professional males and use this in the counselling room. The best way to do this is to listen attentively.
I aim to be truly Person-Centred, treating my clients as unique, rather than defined by normative concepts of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, disability or appearance. I try to approach each client with interest in their unique way of being.
I have regular supervision and develop my professional skills through study and development activities.
