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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
