About me

I am a qualified counsellor with several years experience in one to one counselling for adults and young people. I qualified in 2016 from Staffordshire University. I have worked  with a local charity counselling and supporting victims of sexual violence since 2014.  In addition to this I work for a local mental health support helpline and I have experience working for one of the countries top EAP Providers providing immediate support counselling to clients experiencing a range of mental health issues and life challenges. In 2016 I also graduated from The University of Worcester with a Post Graduate Certificate in Advocacy for Victims of Sexual Violence and I have worked for four years as an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor supporting victims through the Criminal Justice System.  Although my foundation is Person Centred I would describe myself as having an  integrative approach with a keen interest in Solution Focused Therapy.
