I offer one to one sessions across a range of areas and specialise in loss and bereavement, health and long term conditions. I have extensive work experience as a therapist in this field as an accredited counsellor in the NHS and in my own independent practice.
I have had two books published in the area of bereavement and as a qualified and experienced tutor have taught counselling in further education at Diploma level. I also offer low cost counselling to students on Diploma level wishing to meet their therapy requirement.
I have experience of working the area of loss and role change when people face redundancy. I am a qualified and experienced supervisor and offer supervision across health and social care as well as to counselling practioners.
