I am an integrative counsellor, which means I draw on a number of therapeutic approaches to suit the individual needs of my client. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is central to counselling and client's progress through their counselling journey, therefore, through my practice I strive to offer an empathic, non-judgmental therapeutic space where you feel safe to share and explore your experiences.
I have been supporting individuals with their mental health and wellbeing since 2015, working with clients in different contexts including within the charity sector, NHS, community mental health services and prison services.. Alongside my counselling practice. In addition to my 1 - 1 counselling practice I have delivered community based self-help services and workshops alongside therapeutic courses aimed at supporting individuals in managing their mental health and wellbeing. I have also developed, managed and delivered a Level 2 and Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies course for a local mental health charity.
I hold a master’s degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, as such I ensure that each aspect of my therapeutic work and practice adhere to the BACP ethical framework for good practice.
As part of my continued professional development, I have undertaken further training in the following areas:
· Trauma Informed Practice.
