I hold my own private practice and have a particular specialism in Gender which led me to complete a substantial piece of research into working with Gender in Psychotherapy.
As well as my counselling role with LGBT Switchboard I have also worked on the LGBT Health Inclusion Project, held LGBT focus groups. run LGBT support drop in groups alongside offering freelance Management cover for the LGBT Switchboard Counselling department.
