I spent several years in therapy because I believe in the power of therapy (you would not recognize the person I was!) but also, how can I hold your hand as you go through this process if I have not done it myself?
I am a UKCP registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I also work for SHE.UK, providing therapy for survivors of sexual abuse. I have provided Mental Health and Safeguarding support for young people at a local FE college and sports club and I have a private practice in Gedling. I also provide CPD training.
I started my counselling career with Childline and spent over 10 years as a Counsellor and Supervisor with them. It was there I found my passion for working with children and young people, something I have been doing ever since.
I also have specific knowledge of the following areas:
- Bariatric surgery (Pre and Post op)
I am a member of the Scarborough Psycho-therapeutic Training Institute; and have regular supervision to ensure I provide a non-oppressive ethically boundaried practice.
I have completed the following qualifications;
- Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents
- Diploma in CBT
- Advanced Diploma in Relational (Integrative) Counselling
- Diploma in Weight Loss & Nutritional Counselling
