My ongoing training helps ensure that I engage with latest research and thinking. Insight from previous employment helps ground me in the reality of my clients experience of career as a professional or business owner.  Working both in the NHS and as a clinical supervisor ensures I get lots of feedback on my practice beyond that available in purely private work. This helps me question and stay fresh with my ideas about what might help my clients.

Qualifying training:

  • MSc in systemic psychotherapy (2007) for working with individuals, couples and families. (Birkbeck College London).

The path to this psychotherapy qualifying training included Relate’s relationship therapy diploma and their clinical supervision certificate.

Peer Recommendations

BY dr Kate Potter

Chris is a relationship specialist with extensive knowledge of working with individuals, couples and full families. Within peer supervision, Chris has offered insightful and supportive guidance and I can therefore confidently say that he is a practitioner with integrity and strong reflective ability. I imagine that his calm approach and ability to use touches of humour where appropriate, enable him to create a safe place for clients to immediately feel welcome and supported to discuss and unravel their stuck or problematic relationship issues that have led to issues with depression and/or anxiety.
