I was born and educated in France. I have lived in England since 1973.
Astrology has always been part of my life. My mother taught me the little she knew about sun signs when I was very young. I then read extensively on the subject and thus gathered a body of knowledge that has given me a deep understanding of the field.
I was awarded the Dip. API in 1997 and have been a tutor since 2000. During this time I have run many introductory courses and workshops on Astrological Psychology and have helped many students to gain the Dip. APA.
As an astrological counsellor, I offer one-to-one consultations either in face-to-face sessions at my house or by Skype/FaceTime, email, telephone, written analyses. I am also available for ongoing work when this is felt to be beneficial.

I was born in Kenya, E.Africa, and came to the U.K. in the mid-60’s. I gained degrees in Prehistoric Archaeology and Anthropology during the 1970’s.
Since my teenage years, I have been interested in astrology, but only much later decided to pursue it in a more structured way. The Huber Method attracted me particularly because of its strongly spiritual approach.
I qualified as a graduate of the Astrological Psychology Association, gaining my Diploma in 2006.
I also became interested in hypnotherapy, as a means to get beneath the conscious mind, and gained a Diploma in it in 2007. I work with clients in both the capacity of astrological counselling, and hypnotherapy, and aim to blend the two where appropriate.
As well as being a tutor for APA, I have been Membership Secretary since 2009.

I was born and brought up in Whitley Bay, on the Northumbrian coast, but have spent most of my adult life working in London and Milton Keynes. I live in the small market town of Stony Stratford.
I have over 30 years experience as a teacher, senior manager and headteacher in Primary Education. Throughout my career I firmly believed in a ‘person centered’ approach which nurtured pupils’ intellectual, emotional, physical, social and spiritual development and helped them recognise and value their own unique talents and skills. I also had an ongoing interest in psychology and astrology so, when I was first introduced to the work of Bruno and Louise Huber in 1996, I immediately felt in tune with their approach.
Following retirement from teaching, I was able to further develop mentoring and counselling skills, while working with victims of serious crime, for Victim Support. Here I gained experience of working in depth with adults.
I was awarded the APA’s Diploma in Astrological Psychology in 2009 and since then have continued to read, attend courses and workshops, study charts and offer astrological consultations. I am also very interested in the esoteric dimension to astrology.
During my teaching career, I have worked mainly with groups so now having the time and opportunity, as APA course tutor, to teach and support students’ self development on a one-to-one basis feels like a great privilege. I look forward to working with new students.
