Training, qualifications & experience

I began working in the social care sector in 1996. I’ve collaborated with various educational bodies and rehabilitation agencies, including refuges for female domestic abuse victims and children, foster homes and centres which help adults with mental health needs reintegrate back into society.

In 2011, I qualified as a Professional Gestalt Counsellor, successfully completing a three-year integrative and pluralistic counselling course with Italy’s Association for the Psychological Development of the Individual and the Community (A.S.P.I.C.) in Rome. This means I’m trained in a number of different therapeutic modalities and can tailor my sessions specifically to your needs.

I am a member of BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).

Art Therapy qualification and experiences.

Qualified Life Coach with The Clique Accademy in London.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
