Training, qualifications & experience
As well as working in private practise I have previously worked as a locum senior mental health practitioner and cognitive behavioural therapist for CAMHS services outside of the Warwickshire district.
I also spent the last 5 years working as the therapy lead for a third sector organisation that works with vulnerable young people. This has enhanced my private work as I work with a rounded approach to therapy, confident in signposting and engaging other services to support families as units to improve their lives and relationships.
I work with a holistic approach to helping young people to overcome the many challenges that the journey into adulthood can present, and support both the young person and their family to manage a variety of issues, from anxiety and depression to self harm and suicidal ideation, behavioural and psychiatric disorders.
Prior to working as a therapist I have 12 years of experience in mental health and health and social care. I have worked both within the NHS and charitable sectors caring for and promoting the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities and mental health issues. I have worked in community teams and secure inpatient units, with experience of psychiatric intensive care through to rehabilitation wards and independent living. I have a vast knowledge and great depth of experience of mental health disorders and treatments and have a solid network within which to refer clients and families for extra support if necessary.

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.
