Trained and qualified counsellor with eight years’ experience of working in the NHS, Private psychiatric hospital, educational setting and private practice. I have worked with clients presenting with many different concerns including but not limited to:
- Bereavement and loss
- Domestic abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Trauma and PTSD
I started training on my first course (level 2) when I was 42 years old. It was my first time back in education since leaving at 16 and the best career decision I have made.
I have taught counselling at Levels 2, 3 and 4 (Diploma level) for 5 years in Further Education establishments and gained my teaching qualification during that time (2011).
My passion is two-fold; counselling clients and teaching students how to counsel people and become professional qualified counsellors. Seeing the growth and development of clients is such a rewarding experience, coupled with watching the growth and development of many of the students I have taught has made my joint career one of the most rewarding things I have done.
