My therapeutic work reflects the Pluralistic approach and my main modality is the Person-Centred approach, augmented by humanistically applied integrative fusion of mutually selected modalities which offer you the most appropriate support to achieve your desired goals.
I am also a retired management and oil & gas & utilities executive and I have qualified as a Chartered Civil Engineer back in 1983. Since my retirement I have volunteered for the AGEUK and Cruse Bereavement Charities which stimulated my resolve to get re-qualified as a counsellor and therapist.
Since 2016 I am a qualified Cruse bereavement charity volunteer and since 2018 Cruse supervisor.

I am offering my counselling services to private clients as well as to companies. I can and do enhance this service by my professional experiences gained during my management and engineering work in different countries and on different projects.
