Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I see clients in my private practice in a designated, quiet therapy room, but I can travel to other destinations if required.
Over the years I have worked in both the private and voluntary sectors of counselling and supervision, gaining several accolades for voluntary work. After working as a counselling tutor for 12 years, I have, up till 2015, written and provided all Kent Adult Education colleges' counselling training materials, and have written, on request, several other private courses for other providers relating to self-awareness and esteem, body-language and bereavement issues.
I am an Integrative counsellor, with a strong emphasis on individuality, working closely with the client to ensure tailoring the therapy to each client's specific needs.
I'm a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
Training, qualifications & experience
I passed my counselling diploma in 1995 and have since gained extensive experience in several fields including: Working with HMPS staff; working with the police providing trauma counselling; bereavement and loss issues; rape counselling; survivors of sexual abuse, including helping to set up counselling in Slovenia through the Charities Commission; relationship issues and couples counselling, and group therapy for women's self-esteem and parenting skills.
I have also worked with families in a counselling/facilitator role, who wished to talk through issues affecting family relationships and interactions.
I have also worked with many counselling students, providing supervision and personal therapy up to and including Masters Degree level.
I have taught at Diploma level, and know the importance and value of a sound provision of the above.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and am on their register of counsellors.
