Training, qualifications & experience
Since qualifying as a counsellor I have specialised in trauma and recovery and have undertaken continuing professional development with Positive Outcomes for Dissociative Survivors (PODS). In my earlier career I worked primarily with offenders and substance misusers, including non-voluntary clients. This background gave me an insight not only into many of the problems faced by this client group, but also many of the dfficulties experienced by others affected, including their family members.
I gained an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I also hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Supervision from Worcester University.
Horses have been a part of my life since my childhood, and I have worked with horses to aid wellbeing, therapy, learning and training for many years. I have undertaken study in many aspects of equine assisted therapy and am a former associate of The Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA). In 2018 I spoke in Germany at an international symposium on the role of the horse in therapy, and am published in the BACP magazine 'Private Practice' on the subject of Equine Assisted Therapy.
I am fully insured and have a clear and current enhanced certificate from the Disclosure and Disbarring Service.
