More About Me

About Me

I have found that the greatest challenge for me, personally and professionally, is to be tolerant of intolerance. Integrating MI into therapeutic practise and team working, supervision and organisational culture addresses this challenge and is invaluable. It is the ethos that guides the design and implementation of my workshops and my practise in all areas. I am based in Somerset, Wiltshire and Devon but travel frequently to work in all parts of the UK and Europe.

Trainer Statement

I trained as a counsellor in 2004 specialising firstly in complicated grief. Since then I have taken a BSc in Addictions Counselling and MSc in Psyciatry. I have qualified as a clinical supervisor. I currently work as a therapist and supervisor for the NHS and Cruse bereavement care. I am unit leader in MI at the University of Bath's Addictions Counselling BSc organised in conjunction with the charity Action on Addiction  and I am a mental health advisor for the CQC in the UK. My main interests are addictive, compulsive behaviours, impact of loss, teaching new therapists and training teams to work collaboratively with clients/patients and with one another. I have designed workshops/trainings of various lengths, all taking into account the latest evidence regarding the effectiveness of MI and other therapies.

Training Interests
Helping trainees absorb and bcome "MI" rather than just using it as a technique or tool in the box.
