I have been writing about my practice for several years now. Most of my publications are stories from practice. These are true stories, written with the consent of people with whom I have worked which attempt to bring conversations from the counselling room to life on the page. They are mostly about work with children and young people with problems such as stealing, teenage temper tantrums, grief, anorexia and anxiety.
If you would like to have a read, click on one of the publications. More to come soon.
