About Me

Professional Details

I retired as Senior Psychological Therapist with the NHS Talking Therapies Service in Somerset (IAPT: Improving Access to Psychological Therapy), in August 2016.

After my initial training in Lancashire (Lancaster College) I started working professionally in 1985. In 1986 I became Co-ordinator of Off The Record Youth Counselling Service in Swindon, then in 1988 moved to Somerset where I worked with drug users (Share Youth Counselling Service, NCH Action for Children). In 1993 I transferred into private practice and in 1995 was appointed as Practice Counsellor for two GP surgeries (in Taunton and Somerton) which I continued until 2002. Other appointments include (1995) Student Counsellor at the Royal Holloway College (University of London).

Professional Training

In 1992 I gained an M.Sc. in Counselling, Supervision & Training at the University of Bristol. In 1999 I became a Certified Trainer for the EQ Map (Emotional Intelligence Profiling, Q-Metrics, USA) and in 2004 I became a Graduate of the evidence-based Authentic Happiness Coaching Programme (USA), run by Professor Martin Seligman - the foundation course in Positive Psychology at the time.

Training Positions

From 1992 to 2004 I was a Core Tutor (Senior Lecturer) for the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, University of Bristol (B.A.C.P. Accredited Course). From 1993 to 2011 I was Core Tutor for the training of Army Unit Welfare Officers (UWO) and developed and managed a nationally accredited qualification: The Certificate in Welfare Skills (awarded by the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body - CPCAB).

Procounsel Associates Ltd

In 1996 I established this human relations consultancy and all of my work for organisations, SME’s and family businesses have been as Principal Consultant for Procounsel. My motivation in my consultancy work is based on my interest in developing strengths-based organisations and businesses.
