I believe that every individual is important and has the right to be heard and supported, when struggling with mental health issues, whether these be long, or short-term. Hence the reason for my passion in working to provide a genuine, non-judgemental space for you, my client, to explore and work through such difficulties, gaining insight and clarity; resulting in you being able to make choices based on what is right for you, as well as finding more positive ways of managing your mental health.
Training, qualifications & experience
My experience includes 10 years within SLAM NHS Trust in London, supporting people with mental health issues, including those in the list above. This work was undertaken through 1:1, group and family therapy. During this time, I also received one year’s training at the Institute of Psychiatry in London, studying Systemic (Group/Family/Couple) Therapy.
Previously, I worked in a secondary school for two years, providing counselling for pupils aged 11-18, covering a range of issues.
Prior to this, I provided bereavement counselling for two years in an established Bereavement Service in Bromley.
