Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA and a post graduate diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from Birmingham University and I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I am a fully accredited EMDR Practitioner with EMDR Europe, UK and Ireland. I am also an approved Attachment Focused EMDR Practitioner with the Parnell Institute.
I am a level 7 trained (MA Equivalent) Clinical Supervisor and a member of the British Association of Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervisors (Organisational member of UKCP).
I provide individual sessions, couples sessions and specialist EMDR sessions for clients as well as Clinical Supervision for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I have very varied professional experience. Before retraining I worked as a community worker and social worker in Liverpool city centre which gave me solid grounding in many different areas.
I began my therapeutic career as a therapist for NHS long term adult psychology services and then as a therapist for the NHS sexual health and psychosexual service in Worcester. Following these grounding experiences I began to develop my private practice in Worcester.
Originally my private practice was made up of different strands including working as an associate of Worcester therapy Group for 5 years, as a member of the West Mercia Police Affiliate Network for 7 years, as a therapist for the NHS Sexual Health and Psychosexual Team for 7 years and as a therapist for BUPA as well as varying EAPS.
As the practice developed I moved to self referral and the practice now focuses on providing individual, couples and Specialist EMDR sessions to clients and Supervision to Psychotherapists and Counsellors.
