My current practice is largely based in Derby City, in the UK, where I see patients, and engage in teaching, education and research. I also supervise other practitioners, and offer strategic and organisational consultancy. Much of my time is spent with Cathexis Psychotherapy, a social enterprise, where I am Director and Lead Consultant. Additionally I work with the Psychotherapy Foundation, an organisation working to promote, support and develop the use of safe, effective, evidence-based treatments, and the proper and sound governance of these treatments, where I am Chair and Senior Consultant.

I am a qualified clinician and psychotherapist, with substantial experience and training. For the major part of my career I worked in the NHS as a psychotherapist and specialist in psychotherapy. More recently I had a senior and lead role in specialist NHS psychotherapy and psychological therapies across Derby City and Derbyshire.

I work with a range of other organisations and professional bodies. I have been vice-Chair of the Ethics Committee of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), Council Member and Chair of Ethics for UPCA (Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association) which is a Organisational Member of UKCP, and a member of the Executive Committee for the UTC (Universities Training College) which is the College host for UPCA. Currently I have a particular interest in the ethics of competence and the ethics of effectiveness.
