In the past I ran a private counselling practice within a local GPs surgery and until recently I ran a private practice within a local independent hospital. At both of these practices I worked with clients with a vast variety of different issues such as relationship breakdowns, sexuality, domestic abuse, suicide, school bullying, lack of confidence and anxiety. I now run private practice from my home where I am able to offer a warm, relaxed and tranquil environment to individuals seeking counselling support.
I have 11 years experience working within a hospice setting delivering pre/post bereavement care to patients and their families facing life-limiting illness. Whilst at the hospice, I was clinical lead for counselling young people and was a trainer on pre/post bereavement courses.
My bereavement training, experience and interest lead me to work alongside a local funeral directors; where I was available to see individuals for counselling when required.
