Who am I.
For many years I have worked in the I.T industry in a number of different roles. During that time I have embraced self-development, taking the opportunity to use my interest and satisfaction in understand problems and helping people to move into the field of Psychotherapy.
I started working in the voluntary mental health sector in January 2003. From 2007 some of that work started to grow into being a counsellor or psychotherapist, the amount increasing as the years go by. I have worked with many different types of people; age ranges from 18 - 82 and with a wide variation of problems and issues. These pieces of work have ranged from 6 sessions to over 18 months.
