I began my first training as a counsellor in 1987 when
I joined Relate (Marriage Guidance) At this time, the
theoretical model used was psychodynamic. I practised

My interest and passion is in the process of change and
healing that takes place through insight and awareness
of how past trauma and subsequent life choice scripts
have impacted on the persons capacity for emotional
health and well-being.
