Training, qualifications & experience
I began my training over 18 years ago in 1997 and achieved a BA(Hons) in both Counselling & Psychology. In 2003, I studied a Masters Degree (MA) in Counselling. More recently I completed a Diploma in Supervision and am now offering Clinical Supervision.
I have over 18 years experience of working in both the NHS, the Voluntary Sector and private practice. I currently receive referrals from the NHS and a Shipley based charity as a Staff Counsellor offering short-term therapy and I have previously worked as an Adult Mental Health Therapist where I worked indivdually and in groups with clients whom display self-harm type behaviour and with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder. Within the Voluntary Sector, I have specialised in working with Male and Female Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse (Male and Female Abusers) and with young people.
Within my private practice, I have worked alongside many different people from all walks of life, with different ages and with different emotional difficulties.

I feel the role of Counsellor/Psychotherapist is a very responsible one, so I commit to spending regular quality time on my own personal development - this is usually in the form of receiving my own therapy, reading appropriate literature or attending any relevant courses. It is important I do this, to ensure I am the best person I can be for my clients.
