The Minster Centre is a well established, BACP regulated training organisation for integrative psychotherapy. I work in accordance with the BACP ethical framework and my work is professionally supervised.
The training focuses on experiential aspects of learning (learning by doing) and integrates attachment theory and psychodynamic thinking as well as humanistic schools. Rigorous self-examination is required from students.
I also trained as a Christian pastor and have been involved in inter-faith work for many years.
