I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Code of Ethics. I am also registered with the UKCP as a psychotherapeutic counsellor.
My professional counselling education commenced in 2010, completing a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2013. I studied for a BSc (Hons) in Integrative Counselling achieving this in 2014. I achieved my BACP accreditation in 2016.
I have been a counsellor in specialist organisations providing counselling for addiction, the effects of addiction, domestic abuse and emotional eating.
I worked as a Registered General Nurse for many years and I draw on my knowledge of physical ill health in my counselling work. This complements my knowledge of human behaviour; using this whole approach I understand the links between our emotional health and physical health and how any imbalance in either can affect our overall wellbeing.
My qualifications and experience enable me to access a range of different approaches for a wide range of issues.
I will work with you in a safe and confidential environment and give you space to explore the concerns you have today and understand how these may be different in the future.
I work face to face or on the telephone with people who are seeking either long term or short term counselling for a wide range of issues. These include: low self-esteem, low confidence, relationships, difficult life events, anxiety, stress, and depression as well as more specialist areas of abuse, addiction, domestic abuse, emotional eating, loss and bereavement and the effects of traumatic events.
