Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy with further Diplomas in CBT, NLP & Comp. I have extensive experience of working with a variety of client groups and organisations. In 2004 I trained at the Royal Collage for the Blind in Hereford as a complementary therapist, working with the blind and partially sighted. In 2005 I began to work in the private sector with special needs adults and young people with drug addiction. In 2006 I was recruited into the NHS mental health services where I provided therapeutic interventions In acute and psychiatric intensive care mental health hospitals and recovery units. This experience has provided me with insight into working with complex mental health issues with a vast range of individuals from various social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Alongside this work, in 2010 I began working as a counsellor and psychotherapist within the education system and the field of drug and alcohol addictions. In 2012 I incorporated my experience into a new role as a psychotherapist working within a busy palliative care unit within local NHS Hospital. This role included the training of other highly experienced NHS healthcare professionals providing high quality cancer care. In 2014 I expanded my experience, when asked to join a complex psychological team working within forensic prison services, this particular role gave me grate insight into a variety of psychological criminal behaviours and then in 2015 I was asked to join the psychological team at help for heroes. I currently divide my time working life between my work for the charity as a psychological Advisor and my private practice at the Therapy Life Centre, 11 Prittlewell Chase, Southend-on Sea Essex SS0 0RX
