Training, Qualification & Experience
I am a qualified counsellor to degree level and a clinical supervisor to post graduate diploma level. My main approach within counselling and supervision is the humanistic approach, which means the main focus is about the entire experience of the person. Relating with empathy, acceptance and without judgement are important within my practice.
I have experience working within mental health and educational environments. Some of these settings include schools, children and young persons’ mental health charities, family support and domestic violence charities. Currently, I manage a private practice and work with a children and young person's organisation situated in-between Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.
My experience within these settings has enabled me to facilitate group and one to one sessions, manage and co-ordinate short and long term projects and work with counsellors in training with course criteria and portfolios.
To further develop my skills as a practitioner I read, attend professional development courses and training on a regular basis.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
