I qualified as a Probation Officer in 1979 and worked in both the criminal and the divorce courts. On leaving the Probation Service to bring up my family I spent several years as a Samaritan before starting my training with Relate in 1993.
During my Relate career I qualified as a couples counsellor, as a psychosexual therapist and a sexual addiction therapist. I also trained in the supervision of both counsellors and therapists.
I have since qualified in EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy.
