My work as a counselor started in 1984 as a volunteer with a Youth Counseling Agency. From 1990 to 2004 I worked at a College of Further Education as a counselor and tutor. During these years I developed and taught the college counseling course programme from Introductory to Diploma level. Since then I have worked in private practice as a counselor, supervisor and trainer. I am a BACP Senior Registered Counselor, UKRC Registered Independent Counsellor and hold qualifications in Further and Adult Teaching, Group Facilitation, Supervision and Critical Incident Debriefing.
More recently I have trained in Equine Assisted Therapy, Horse Whispering and Horse / Human Relationship Development.
Since childhood I have had a love of and involvement with horses.
