MA Integrative Psychotherapy; Level 4 Diploma in Counselling, Diploma in Supervision;  M.Sc; BA Hons.

I am currently the Director of Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC), maintain a small private practice, give training in a variety of settings on a number of topics, and lead the Spiritual Direction module on the MA in Spiritual Formation at Waverley Abbey College.

My interest is in integrating Christian spirituality with understandings of mental health and wellbeing and especially in the practice of those called into the ministry of counselling. I am currently re-working the ethics and practice statement of the ACC and together with colleagues in the profession, hope to design competencies and a training curriculum for the safe integration of Christianity and counselling.
