Blue Skies is closed after 27 years

I’m very sad to say that after 27 years of practice as a psychotherapist, supervisor, tutor, course writer and trainer, that I am closing my practice.

If you’ve worked with me you will know I love my work and I love the people I work with and that I have kept the possibility of continuing work open for as long as possible.

Unfortunately illness and the aggressive treatment I’m undergoing is going to need all my focus and energy and time now. It’s not great news, I know, but I intend to face this with grace and truthfulness and give it my all, just as I hope I did at work.

If you have worked with me in the past then I hope we had chance to do enough so that you can continue to value and love your own uniqueness. That’s my thing, as you know, the more you try to be who you are not, or where you are not, the more stuck you become. We are where we are. That’s the truth.

My blogs and self help pages remain here for your reference and I will update if I feel well enough. You can at the moment use the home page to continue to sign up for my newsletter, email to ask for my personal recommendations for a therapist, trainer or supervisor.

I don’t feel that I can do anything other than do what must be done and focus myself 100% upon my health and recovery to give myself the best chance. I’m very lucky to have a lot of loving support.

I appreciate all your good wishes, love and support.

With love to you all,
