My journey in clinical practice began with the Jersey Addiction Group as a trainee counsellor and after attaining an Intermediate Certificate in Counselling Skills realised I needed to further my experience and qualifications in the U.K.
I trained and then was employed by Broadreach House Plymouth,a leading Residential Unit for Drug and Alcohol Dependency in the South West of England. During this time I passed their Diploma in Addiction Counselling and I also undertook specialised training in which I gained certificates in Motivational Interviewing ,Working with Self Harm,Eating Disorders,Training in Sexual Abuse and Trauma and Blood Borne Viruses.
My continual development has led to additional training with Clouds  ‘Working With Families and Substance Misuse, and the Iron Mill Institute ,’Mentoring ,Coaching  and Clinical Supervision. Working with Couples and Brief Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Tavistock & Portman, Sex and Porn Addiction with Paula Hall at the Priory London
I returned to Jersey in 2006 and became the Programme Director/Reg.Manager of a Residential unit for Drug and Alcohol Addiction and established the framework and organisation of their Half-Way House. Following this I worked within the Criminal Justice System and am now in Private Practice offering both Counselling and  Clinical Supervision.
I have gained the National Counsellor Accreditation Certificate with the Federation of Drug and Alcohol Professionals (F.D.A.P.) and hold the United Kingdom Registered Independent Counsellor /Psychotherapist (U.K.R.C.P.) status and am an Accredited and Registered Member of A.T.S.A.C (Assoc, for the Treatment of Sex Addiction and Compulsivity) and also the  F.D.A.P (Federation of Drug & Alcohol Practitioners). and the E.A.S.(European Assoc. of Supervisors)
My training in Supervision with the Iron Mill Institute in Exeter involved using the Models of Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Narrative , Art and Drama based techniques and the use of Metaphor. This 2 year course led to my Accreditation with the E.A.S. and my Diploma in Supervision with the Iron Mill Institute .
My professional training and qualifications in addition to 31 years of successful experience of the 12 Step Model has made me I feel a very well-rounded competent Eclectic practioner in the Counselling Field. Clients and Supervisees can be confident that my practice is fully insured and bound by a strong Code of Ethics belonging to the Professional Bodies  of B.A.C.P. the E.A.S. and the F.D.A.P
