About me


Training, qualifications & experience

I began my training in 1999 in Kent and completed an 'Introduction to Counselling' course, and was instantly drawn to the ethos and process of counselling. I went on to complete an OCR Certificate in Counselling Skills with Bromley Therapy and Training Centre in 2000.

On moving to Derby in 2001, I studied for a further 2 years on the MA in Integrative counselling practise, and completed both my Post Graduate certificate and the Post Graduate Diploma.

I have worked in private practice since 2003 and have obtained a vast amount of experience in this field. Prior to this I was a volunteer counsellor, for 2 years, working with a broad area of issues.

I also work as a counsellor for a number of Employee assistant programmes, which require a Brief solution focussed approach and I have also spent some time working as an affiliate Counsellor for the NHS within the IAPT programme. I also work for private healthcare organisations such as Aviva.

I attend regular workshops in order to ensure that my practice is kept up to date.

I am also a clinical supervisor and I have spent some time lecturing at the University of Derby, for the MA in integrative counselling practice. More recently I have been carrying out a training programme for a local specialist agency to train Counsellors to work with clients who have experienced Rape or sexual abuse.
