I provide an independent professional, caring and non-judgemental counselling service for adults and couples from a quiet and discreet centre in the heart of Holmes Chapel.
In accordance with the governing body (BACP) I have attended a diverse amount of ‘continuing professional development’ therefore have a huge toolbox to call upon and trust that the client will draw out of me what they need for their healing and growth.
For ten years I worked at North Staffs Mind in Hanley; initially on the Adults Team as placement counsellor, continued as volunteer and then gained a full time contract working on the Children’s Team. I was sponsored by Mind and North Staffs Combined Healthcare to complete the Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme) qualifications covering age 2-16years and facilitated this within the Stoke-on-Trent area on a one-to-one or in groups.
Alongside the above I have established a private practice where people can refer themselves directly. I also receive time-limited work through Employee Assisted Programmes, Insurance Companies, Occupational Health and Human Resource Departments. Plus receive temporary contracts to work as a Locum Counsellor on the NHS IAPT Waiting List Initiatives.
