Experience

I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist for the past 4 years in both the charity sector and in enhanced primary care in the NHS.  Before solely concentrating on psychotherapy, I have experience within both the education and corporate sectors.  I believe having a wide range of life experiences supports me to be a more rounded person and to be a more effective therapist.

My experiences have given me a particular interest in how the work-place effects a person’s wellbeing, how issues in relationships can be difficult, as well has how trauma impacts people over time.

I offer both short-term counselling, where we can work through a specific problem and longer-term psychotherapy where deeper issues can be explored.

As part of working ethically we would regularly review progress to make sure your needs are being met.

Further Training & CPD

So far this year I have completed training courses to expand my expertise in working with trauma. As part of my membership to an ethical body I undertake at least 50 hours a year of CPD.

Insurance/DBS

I am fully insured to practice as a psychotherapist and counsellor and am subscribed to the Disclosure and Barring Updates service.
