I qualified as a counsellor in 2008 and have run a successful private practice ever since. As a Registered Accredited Member of the BACP, my aim is to provide you with a welcoming, safe and supportive environment where you can discuss your clinical work, explore your continuing professional development needs and if appropriate, gain support in building and maintaining a thriving counselling private practice. I'm currently undertaking a Level 6 Certificate in Therapeutic Supervision and I'm therefore offering 2 counsellors a specially discounted rate for 5 supervision sessions each until May 2022. My supervision work will be supervised by another counselling supervisor (as is usual practice) and I will also receive additional guidance as part of the Level 6 course, so you can be assured that you'll receive excellent supervision. As well as working in private practice, I have counselled in GP practices, and provided counselling for health insurance companies and for local businesses. In addition to being a counsellor, I'm also a qualified hypnotherapist and integrate this into my counselling practice. I'm a published author, having co-written the book 'The Art of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy: A Collection of Case Studies' with colleagues, and I'm also published in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal. I have recently obtained a First Class Honours Degree in Professional Development in Mental Health.
