I have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Group work and I have been providing counselling at Kerith since January 2015. I also work for another similar counselling organisation.
I previously worked for over 20 years in the dental industry. It was during this time that I decided to train as a counsellor and I completed my diploma cognitive behavioural therapy in 2014. In 2015 I became involved with Kerith Counselling service as a volunteer counsellor and I’ve had the honour of supporting lots of people in their counselling journeys since then.
During the Covid-19 pandemic I was made redundant and I took this opportunity to develop my counselling career working. It was during this time that I became the clinical manager, a role that I share with Lynsay McMahon, on a job share basis. I also work for another non-profit organisation as a senior counsellor.
I am a registered counsellor with COSCA and I use an integrative counselling approach.
In my role as manager, I count it a privilege to work with a supportive and caring team who are committed to supporting all who seek counselling at Kerith.
I am married with two children and a grandson. I am a member of a local church and I have an active Christian faith.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and also enjoy football.
