I am a fully accredited UKCP, EABP and EAP registered psychotherapist, with more than 35 years of professional experience.
The UKCP register of psychotherapists has been accepted (accredited) by the UK Professional Standards Authority.
I work with a combination of several different modalities (see below); I have a wide experience of working in a variety of clinical settings (individual private practice, groups, community, educational, including the NHS); and of working with a wide range of different clients (adults, couples, adolescents, people in crisis, etc.).
I work clinically in and around Edinburgh, Scotland, UK and in the Scottish Borders (Melrose).
I have also been actively involved in: several professional associations in psychotherapy; in developing the politics of psychotherapy in Europe; presenting at international conferences; in leading workshops & seminars; in editing books and journals; in writing many articles & chapters on psychotherapy; in writing a couple of books and edited several others ... as well as occasionally writing poetry, looking after the garden, and being a loving husband, father and now grandfather.
