Training, qualifications & experience
I gained a distinction from the University of Gloucestershire in 2015, having spent several years studying for a Foundation Degree in Counselling.
Prior to and alongside that I’ve supported people through change, in the corporate environment, for over 25 years.
I am a Registered member of the BACP and a Mental Health First Aider.
As a counsellor I chose, in 2012, to specialise in loss and grief with the bereavement support agency, Cruse and am accredited by them for both bereavement support and supervision.
Additionally I have worked as a sessional counsellor for Bristol Mind, helping clients facing a wide variety of concerns from anxiety and depression through to more complex mental health issues.
Having trained to work therapeutically with children and young people I have done so with OTR; I have also mentored at City Academy and currently teach counselling skills at City of Bristol College.
I integrate various counselling and coaching styles and approaches into our work together, and I regularly update my skills.
