I developed a successful career in Human Resources reaching the position of Director of Human Resources for one of the leading universities in the Midlands. It was while working in HR that I developed an interest in counselling and psychotherapy for which I undertook a programme of study and training as a mature student.


I completed a two year programme of part-time study leading to a Master of Science Degree in Change Agent Skills and Strategies at
the University of Surrey before completing a four year training in counselling and psychotherapy, by part-time study, at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute in Nottingham. The training was validated by the University of Derby.
