My Training and Experience

After gaining a BA (Hons) in Psychology at the University of Manchester, I began my professional life in Recruitment and subsequently Human Resources.  Both gave me my early experiences of listening to people's past and future motivations and ambitions, as well as exploring their potential.  These first few years working in the commercial field taught me the need for tact and empathy, both vital when working so closely with people.

Whilst working in Human Resources, I started studying part-time at The Minster Centre in London (accredited by Middlesex University), and in 2010, I gained an Advanced Diploma (Ad Dip) and Masters Degree (MA) in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling.

I am bound by The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) code of ethics, with whom I am registered and accredited and I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am fully insured and my work is regularly supervised (one to one with a fully qualified and experienced supervisor) .

Within the private healthcare sector, I am a recognised therapist with both Bupa and WPA,

I am a fully trained and experienced Bereavement Counsellor, which means I have specific understanding of the grieving process.  Before setting up privately, I worked as a Counsellor in a GP's practice, offering short-term counselling.

Together with my private practice, I continue to enhance my ability to work across the board, short-term as well as long-term, counselling as well as psychotherapy, therapy for self-development as well as therapy with extreme states and mental-emotional pain.  My training will always continue, by means of attending regular courses, workshops and seminars.  I also offer Psychotherapy to trainee Psychotherapists.
