Professional Background

In 2004 I decided to add academic knowledge to my life experience and work towards a career as a Professional Counselling Practitioner.

I have worked on a voluntary basis with those who are drug and alcohol dependent,including prisoners and their families and in the field of sexual abuse.

I have Counselled young people based at a High School, University students, worked with the aged, the bereaved, those struggling with mental ill-health, male and female survivors of sexual molestation, couples, families and young people, those suffering trauma from road traffic accidents, broken relationships, stress, anxiety, depression and various other life issues.

To date, my work experience is varied and interesting and I am fully committed to supporting people through counselling and therapeutic progression.

Part of my previous work at RASA  involved assessing and supporting clients of ISVA workers (Independent Sexual Violence Advisers) who were referred to me after the trial of their perpetrator has concluded for Counselling, many of whom experience DID ( dissociate identity
disorder).

I have undertaken appropriate training to work with children who are survivors of rape and/or sexual abuse between the ages of 5 and 18 years. I worked for RASA Wirral, Liverpool and Sefton, providing counselling and emotional support to young people who fit this description and their families/guardians, as well as with male and female adults.

In 2017, I became part of a team at Doctors Chambers to develop computerised psychological services. I was Research Consultant during the early stages providing a clinical overview and later became Clinical Lead and Founder Supplier of computerised therapy (CCBT) I am presently Founder Supplier of the service which providing video and telephone consultations, via an app.This is continuing to develop and we about to launch the second stage of computerised CBT (March 2020)

I have provided welfare support to members of the emergency services who are exposed to loss of life and/or trauma within their line of duty.

I support University students whose course requirements stipulate that they must undertake personal counselling sessions as part of their own  professional  development.

I have facilitated an outreach project within the Probation Service offering Counselling to male and female survivors of sexual abuse who have been placed on probation, as well as working alongside management in delegating and managing my case load.

I  provide counselling sessions for Body Care Clinics/Doctors Chambers, supporting clients who have been involved in road traffic accidents and accidents within the working environment and have done so routinely since 2012. I also provide support for the company staff.

I spent three years as 'in-house Therapist providing Counselling and support for young looked after people who are semi-independent along with staff members, at KPMS.

I provided 90 minute face to face Counselling sessions on The Wirral at MCTC from 2015 to 2010. Part of my work at the centre was to provide support to suicidal clients through a programme which is unique to MCTC.

I  offer counselling by video to individuals who are struggling with addictions and face to face support to University students partaking in Counselling courses, who are on placement.

I provide counselling face to face, by telephone,  VSee and Skype to this effect, as well as in my private practice.


I would describe myself as being naturally empathetic and intuitive and I am also flexible and adaptable and can often see clients with very little notice, including over evenings and weekends.

I  provide face to face, online and telephone counselling, during afternoons, evenings and weekends only.

I partake in training events as part of my personal and professional development on an ongoing basis, in addition to peer support and supervision.

I have experience in the following areas:

High School Counsellor supporting  young people between the ages of 11 and 15 years, with issues connected to relationship difficulties, abuse issues, self harm, low self esteem, bullying, anger and bereavement or loss.

I was based in a GP Practice with clients who were diagnosed with various forms of mental ill health.

I have worked for Age Concern, supporting clients above the age of 50.

I have also supported  prisoners and their families, along with those whose lives have been affected by substance misuse and addiction.

Until April 2016 I worked for 6 years with adults and young people who have been raped and/or sexually abused at some point in their lives, historically or recently, many of whom are going through court procedures. I managed a case load of clients in the City who fall into this category and visited children in primary school to provide this support.

My clients are male and female adults and young people.

I receive referrals to counsel clients face to face and over the telephone or via webcam who have been involved in road traffic accidents as well as those who have suffered accidents at work.

I provide assessments and make recommendations regarding appropriate therapeutic models and time scales.

The client referrals come through Body Care Clinics Limited/Doctors Chambers and this work is incorporated into my private practice.

I work as an associate counsellor accepting EAP referrals from numerous companies.


I have worked online for Mootu Counselling Service, Counselling and Coaching people from the global community who bring a variety of issues, for which they require support.
