I am a qualified  counsellor  having studied for 3 years in the classroom to gain an ABC level 4  diploma in the theory and practice of counselling in 2010.

I practice within the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy of which I am a Registered and Accredited member. I fulfil their criteria by having monthly supervision. This is with a very experienced, qualified counsellor that is a registered member of BACP that has trained as a supervisor.

I also regularly update my knowledge by doing continual professional development as per BACP requirements.

  I have worked with those that for example may feel   low in mood, have been suffering from depression and are   feeling anxious .Sometimes this anxiety can lead   on to   feeling panicky or suffering from panic attacks. There are various reasons for this that I have been able to enable clients to work through.

Relationship issues, work related stress,  bereavement ,low self esteem, feeling sad and health issues are other common issues that bring people to my counselling practice. Some just come for sessions to work out what is triggering them to feel as they feel. I have a particular interest in working with grief and loss and also studied  this area within my Health and Social Care Degree.

I hold a 2:1 honours degree in Health and Social care which I feel helps me to empathise with many of the issues  that people bring to counselling .

I am also Cruse trained  and have completed the Cruse Awareness in Bereavement Care course  in 2008 . I am a cruse trained supervisor and hold a level 3 Award in Cruse Bereavement Care Supervision, 2011. I have five years of experience in volunteering for Cruse which is a national bereavement agency , working with the bereaved.  I also held the role of referral secretary where I took the incoming telephone calls and assessed the needs of the caller, this  has  all held me in good stead for my work with my clients.

I have worked as a volunteer on the telephone helpline for a national  emotional crisis help line  in the past and completed the ASIST suicide course in 2008, so I feel that I can empathise with those that are feeling very low and depressed.

I have worked as a trained nurse in a hospital and nursing homes and therefore have gained an insight into the types of health and family  issues that bring clients to counselling. This includes the care of the ill and terminally ill patient . I have liased with their  family pre and post bereavement and  during illness and so I feel I can empathise with the feelings that this can trigger.

I work for clients that approach me on an individual basis and I also work for agencies and employers that offer counselling for employees , I am also willing to accept GP referrals. I have been in private practice for 7 years.
