I left 'Turning point' to work as a Psychological Therapist for K.C.A. UK. an IAPT Psychological Therapies provider for Havering Primary Care trust. I received clients at doctors surgery's in South Hornchurch and Romford presenting with a wide variety of mental health problems. I then set up and taught the counselling courses at Hertfordshire regional college which are still running today.
I now work full time as a Counsellor at Standon and Puckeridge Surgery. I also receive referrals from Argent rehabilitation, and health insurance company's working with clients who have experienced Psychological trauma, stress and anxiety, supporting them in returning back to work.
