I have completed a BSc (Hons) Psychology and hold a Masters of Science in Integrative Counselling, I am an Accredited and Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP); meaning that I strictly adhere to their ethical guidelines, and am governed by their regulations- they are Accredited by the Department of Health.
I am fully committed to the Counselling process, from my personal and professional experience; it can bring about change. It can be transformational as well as support us through life’s challenges. I strongly believe that we all hold the ability for change within us, and the right support can allow this to emerge.
I have worked in the private and public sector, in the NHS within acute mental health and medical settings; such as the Maudsley and Kings College Hospital, and for charities such as Place2Be, within schools, Kids Company, and at Universities. I have been a manager of Counsellors in the Corporate sector and therefore understand the pressures that people can experience in their working life.
I am rigorous about evaluating my practice and keeping up-to-date with research and developments within my profession. I am currently training to be a Clinical Supervisor and have special interests in Addictions.
In accordance with the requirements of my Accreditation I attend regular Clinical Supervision, I also adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for good practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy.
