I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I studied Counselling and Psychotherapy at Regents College and completed the Diploma in Psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education.

I entered into my training in counselling and psychotherapy following a career in the ‘business world’. During this time I completed a Masters Degree (MBA) specialising in group and organisational behaviour and studied for a period of time on the Doctorate programme in Business Studies (DBA) before beginning my Counselling and Psychotherapy training in 2003.

I have studied and trained across a number of therapeutic modalities including psychodynamic, analytic, transpersonal, arts and humanistic (person centred) psychotherapy. My post qualification continuing professional development has been in the areas of analytical (Jungian) psychology, the study of transgenerational trauma and more recently undertaking a PhD research degree in Cornish studies.

I am an active musician and have studied the guitar for over 30 years, playing a mixture of contemporary and indigenous music on the nylon stringed guitar.

I am a husband and a father.
