“It has been the most enlightening experience of my life and has enabled me to explore and develop in more ways than I thought possible. I constantly tell friends or colleagues that they should have a hour with Steph, although I cannot explain how or what she does, all I can is say is I’m happier now than I have been for over 10 years.”

Each year I am required to complete a minimum of 30hrs CPD as a condition of my professional membership, a figure which I regularly exceed.

Like everyone I am flawed, imperfect and human (thank goodness!) and in order to feel as clear and resolved as possible for the health of my practice I choose to work on myself through study, personal development, meditation and clinical supervision.

Over the years I have engaged in a great deal of personal therapy and passionately believe that a therapist’s lived experience should be regarded as the most important item in their professional toolbox. 

I continue to write and campaign on this topic.
