About me: Before my counselling career, I worked in a variety of different environments, I also did some voluntary work for many years. This experience made me curious about human beings and the way we think, feel and behave. It was after this that I began my initial counselling training.

Training, qualifications & experience
BA (Hons) Counselling
Diploma Gestalt/Humanistic Counselling
Essential Supervision Skills Certificate (CPD)
In 2004 I began volunteering for a local rape crisis service where I undertook their extensive, 100 hour training, which prepared me for working with clients that have experienced rape and/or sexual abuse. I began working on the confidential telephone help-line and after further training and on completing my Diploma was taken on as a paid member of the staff team where I see 10 clients per week and conduct assessments. During this longer term therapy, many issues are worked with, not just rape or sexual abuse.
While studying for my degree I further developed my skills, with modules on Gender and Human Sexuality, CBT, Supervision, Trauma and Contemporary Developments such as Narrative Therapy and Neuroscience.
Recently I have attended workshops on working creatively and mentalisation based therapy and attended Essential Supervision Skills training which was approved by The British Psychological Society. I regularly co-facilitate a group on emotional coping skills.
I wrote my dissertation on the subject of vicarious trauma, I am interested in how people who work within the field of trauma are affected by their experience.
In private private practice where I see 3-5 clients per week, and work with a range of difficulties. This work can be short or long term.
