I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Counsellor, am an Accredited member of the BACP, and have worked for over ten years.
I offer a safe and comfortable experience in a designated room in my home where you will have the opportunity to explore your own feelings and self-knowledge, and perhaps evolve new strategies for dealing with problems.
My trust in Person-Centred counselling means that we will work together in exploration, but you are the one in charge of both the session and your own life, and you will ultimately know what is best for yourself. I also use CBT theory in my approach.
I offer a flexible and attuned service which is both confidential and non-judgemental.
Training, qualifications & experience
As well as running a private practice I am currently employed as a Student Counsellor and Safeguarding Officer in a College of Further Education.
I have had extensive experience working with adolescents and young people, as I also worked for 4 years at "Off The Record", a youth agency in Croydon.
I worked as a low cost Counsellor in a Medical Centre for 18 months. I have been with "Cruse Bereavement Care" for many years, becoming part of their assessment team, and working closely with those experiencing loss of all sorts.
In both fields I have encountered many different complications, such as stress, anxiety, sexuality, childhood issues abuse and many others.
My background is in Theatre Design, where I gained my BA (Hons) 2i Degree. I began training as a Person-Centred Counsellor in 2006, earning a Foundation Degree and Diploma in Counselling at a BACP-approved college in 2008. I have also attended 2 courses with Cruse Bereavement Care in 2007 & 8, and a course in Art Therapy in 2007. I have attendede a course in CBT which I use in addition to my Person-Centred model.
