I am a counsellor and therapist, for individuals and couples, supervisor, group facilitator and trainer based in Gloucestershire, UK.
I emigrated from Ireland to London in 1987 and worked initially as a youth and community worker before retraining as a counsellor and therapist.
I qualified as a counsellor in 1992 and have completed a considerable amount of further training with regard to Clinical Supervision, Couples work, Groupwork, Family Constellations and Training for trainers.
Since 1987 I have worked in a variety of contexts including the Youth Service, Further and Higher Education, Occupational Health, Drug and Alcohol services, a variety of voluntary organisations and private practice.
I am also a tutor on the Advanced Diploma in Relational Supervision offered by Severn talking Therapy, delivering the course to Counsellors and Psychotherapists in the UK and to a variety of Helping Professionals in Malta.
Since 1996 I have trained and worked extensively in Systemic and Family Constellations. I facilitate family constellation workshops in Ireland and the UK. I am particularly interested in integrating with Systemic Constellations work the recent insights from work on trauma, the latest research in neurobiology, neuroscience and mindfulness practice . My study of mindfulness practice has been through attending regular retreats since 1992 taught by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Currently, I am developing my role as a trainer in the field of family constellations work and mindfulness.
I have a well-established therapy and supervision practice in Gloucester. I also offer local Constellation workshops, as well as facilitating training and workshops elsewhere.
