I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am on the BACP register of approved practitioners. I am a member of the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also have a Certificate in Couples Counselling and a Certificate in Interpersonal Mediation.
I have experience of working on a wide range of issues with people of all ages, and have volunteered my counselling services with a drop-in centre for young adults and, more recently, a post-natal support group.
I retrained as a counsellor after many years working in IT within a large company, where I had first-hand experience of supporting people affected by redundancy, workplace stress, bullying, and the impact of organisational change.
My strengths lie in providing a calm, welcoming, safe, non-judgmental environment where you can feel able to talk openly during what is a difficult and challenging time in your life, and in helping you to identify a way forward.
