I studied at the University of Chester for a period of seven years, qualifying in March 2013.
I am a Qualified Counsellor, with a Masters Degree (passed with Honours) in Clinical Counselling,(accredited course), and a BA in Psychology and Counselling Skills (passed with Honours).
In 2009 I completed the Cruse Bereavement Care Foundation course (part 1&2), and I attend monthly training in bereavement work, and keep up to date reading relevant books, journals, and research papers. I endeavour to constantly work on my personal and professional development.
