Training, qualifications & experience
BSc, Dip. Couns., Post Grad. Cert. CBT, BACP Accredited, UKRCP Reg.
I have been working in counselling and therapy since the early 1990’s when, after an initial training in Person Centred and Humanistic counselling (Diploma completed in 1995), I began working as a counsellor at Centre 33, the Young People’s Counselling Service in Cambridge where I worked for more than 15 years. During this time I also worked in GP Surgeries in Royston and Stevenage.
In 2008, I returned to further train in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy on a recognised course at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford, and this is now my primary mode of working (for details of recognised CBT courses see www.babcp.com). I have more recently worked as a CognitiveTherapist for the NHS Intake & Treatment Team at Addenbrooks Hospital
I am an Accredited Member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and registered with the UKRCP (United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I am also a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
MSc, Dip. Couns., ASIIP Cert. Supervision
BACP Accredited, UKRCP Reg.,
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor with a background in psychology. I consider myself a person centred practitioner although I will often draw on my experience of other approaches in my work with individuals and couples.
After qualifying in 2002, I spent three years working with Centre 33, the Young People’s Counselling Service in Cambridge. This was followed by a year with the NHS Complex Cases Service where I was introduced to the use of Cognitive Analytic Therapy in the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder. In 2007, I established the in-school counselling service at Chesterton Community College offering counselling to pupils and staff. Additionally, I have worked in private practice since 2002 and have a purpose built counselling room in Fulbourn, providing a safe, comfortable and professional space for my clients to be.
I am also able to offer counselling supervision either to experienced or trainee counsellors from various theoretical orientations. I studied with Cambridge Supervision Training and hold the ASIIP Certificate in Integrative Supervision.

Why come for Counselling?
People come for counselling for many different reasons ranging from on-going personal development; support in dealing with a specific problem, such as those listed above, or during a time of crisis.
Deciding to seek counselling can sometimes feel like a big step but it is something that, with the right counsellor, most people find valuable. Whoever you are, whatever your age or situation, counselling can bring about many positive, life enhancing changes or it may simply offer somewhere for you to share your feelings in times of distress and to receive some additional support.
