Michael Morgan

I am a member of the ITAA, the professional body for Transactional Analysis practitioners. I regularly enhance my knowledge and skills by taking part in continuous professional development activities - and as is usual with good counselling practice I have a Supervisor.

I originally trained in biology and nutrition, then in teaching, and use that training and experience working now as a Counsellor.

After a number of years working with aid agencies overseas, in nutrition and health, in Africa, PNG and the Caribbean, I then trained in psychotherapy, counselling and supervision in London (at Metanoia) - and at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy in the 1990s, while working as a Senior Lecturere in Health Studies and Nursing at several Universities. I have also had experience working as a University Student Counsellor and at an NHS Alcohol Centre. I have had a private practice in Oxford, Reading, and now in Exeter, for several years.

I work in an intuitive manner, using both transactional analysis and an integrative counselling approach, This encompasses a shared exploration of thinking, feeling and behaving, seeking attunement and harmony.

I have regularly updated my skills and knowledge, now also trained in counselling supervision, and taking short modules in Gestalt Therapy and Psychodrama.

In my personal life, I am married and we live with our two cats near the River Exe. I bird-watch, walk, engage in Zumba and Tai Chi classes. I am also a Quaker.
