I have a Certificate in the Therapeutic and Educational Application of the Arts and a MA in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy from The Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (IATE) , awarded by London Metropolitan University
I attended the Child 20 Day Program run by IATE and the Corrective Attachment Therapy Parenting Course at The Evergreen Psychotherapy Centre in Colorado, USA.
I have been practicing Buddhism for the past 30 years which has given a deep understanding of my self and human nature.
I work with Men & Women, young people and children. Between 2005 - 20010, I worked as the only male Psychotherapist at Whitehawk Primary School seeing both adults and children. Up to recently I was working with young people (ages 13- 25) at the Young People Centre in Brighton.
Prior to my therapy training, I worked in the Performing Arts profession and am well aware of the strains and stresses of working in that industry. I still work as a teacher at many of the top Drama Schools. (The Drama Centre, Central School of Speech & Drama). I am currently Lecturer in Performing Arts at Bexhill 6th Form College.
I also have many years of working with Young men and Men and understand the struggles they go through, especially Anger and Depression.
I am a member of A Band of Brothers, a charity established by men committed to positive social change through personal development and community building. We mentor young men who have had challenges with drugs, violence, anger and self esteem.
I adopted a young boy and also understand the challenges & joys of Adoption.
I am a Somatic Experiencer Practitioner (SEP). Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a powerful body based 'talking therapy' , capable of relieving physical, emotional and psychological shock, stress and trauma.
I am a member of BACP and adhere to the code of Ethics of my training institute, the BACP and the UKCP, to provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
As a Psychotherapist I am in regular supervision. This is an important part of my work. It means that I can maintain the highest standards of care, always working towards your well being.
