About Me

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and an individual member of the BACP, and I adhere to their ethical framework; I am also a member of the British Psychological Society. 

I have a history of managing luxury hotels and bars during the '90s, then running my own company within the marine industry for 12 years. I gave up working on boats after suffering two major strokes and other illnesses; I miss being on the water, but I came to the realisation what I missed was the social interaction. I chose to become a counsellor, and I already held a previous diploma in business, so the fear of education was removed. I completed Level 2,3 in counselling studies, and a level 4 diploma in therapeutic counselling governed by the CPCAB. In this time frame, I studied a counselling foundation degree with the Open University. I am now studying my final stage in an Honours degree in Psychology and Counselling also, with the Open University, I intend to enrol onto a doctorate and become a Dr in Clinical Psychology.
