Accredited Voluntary Register

As you can see from the above logo I am an Accredited member and
I am also an approved Supervisor with the National Counselling Society

I continue to expand, open and raise my own awareness via the necessary
organisational CDP (continued professional development) requirements and
also more recently have been following direct experience and self enquiry,
from teachers & speakers such as:

Carl Jung - Rumi - Zahir Khan - Eckhart Tolle - Byron Katie to name a few

I attend monthly private Supervision, with someone more qualified and experienced than myself.
This ensures that my own practice work continues to be completely transparent,
professional and fully effective.

I take Client work very seriously and continually look to see how I might improve my services,
if you have an any questions or suggestions then please do get in touch.
