I freelance as a trainer and lecturer with particular interest in gender, diversity, sex and sexuality, teaching healthcare professionals and providing tailored interventions for private companies.
I’ve taught on accredited courses in the UK including DFSS, STIF, DipGU, MSc (Couns Psy) and regularly work as a group facilitator specialising in interventions that focus on relationships, sexual behaviour and recreational drug use.
I’ve published in therapeutic journals in both the UK and US, have contributed to magazines as diverse as Skin 2 and Positive Nation, as well as collected essays of psychological issues. I'm often to be found in the lesbian and gay press as a columnist on health matters.
Introduction to Motivational Interviewing Techniques
I was part of the SSHA team rolling out training across the UK in Motivational Interviewing for health professionals. I also provide tailor-made MI courses of either one or two days in length.
I completed my supervisionary training at the Metanoia Institute, and am available for the supervision of individual therapists. This is based at the Bethnal Green practice and takes an integrative approach. The expectation of the BACP for ongoing registration is at least 1.5 hrs clinical supervision per month.
An essential part of the training process of counsellors and therapists is personal therapy. I provide a fixed fee weekly session for the duration of training. The trainee will need to be committed to this exploratory process and recognise the importance of its integration into the overall training programmes. For those on UKCP courses, please check with your institute before assessment to ensure that you are able to embark on therapy with a BACP registered therapist.
