About MeI have worked as a psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer for almost thirty years. My training includes a Doctorate Degree in Counselling Psychology, as well as additional postgraduate training. I have graduate qualifications and extensive experience in Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness Meditation, Clinical Hypnosis, and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I have co-authored a book on supervision, Supervising Professionals: a Model for Practice, which will be published in Autumn, 2009, By Jessica Kingsley. The book is incorporated in the Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Supervision, which provides an integrative approach to supervision, and is taught at City University, London.
I am a member in good standing of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), British Society for Academic and Clinical Hypnosis (BSACH) in the U.K., and The National Association for Counselor Certification (NBCC) in the U.S.
I am originally from Texas and have lived in Europe since 1973. I resided in Germany for twenty years, where I acted as director of a family therapy centre, taught for Boston University's Overseas Programme in Counselling, and maintained a private therapy and consultation practice. After moving to the U.K. in 1993, I taught for the University of Maryland and Regent's College, London. While at Regent's College, I developed, opened and ran the School's Therapy and Counselling Centre, and taught on the M.A. and Doctoral Programmes for the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling. Since 2001, I have acted as a guest lecturer at Metropolitan University, City University and the University of Maryland. I have also provided psychotherapy, supervision and training privately and to organisations.
