I studied for my Diploma in Counselling at the University of the West of England. I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and on the BACP Register.
I am also a graduate and qualified teacher with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
People have come to me for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes it is because of a generalised feeling of anxiety or a dissatisfaction with their life; other people wish to address a specific concern. My counselling experience includes:
Bereavement and loss
Alcohol and/or drug use
Impulsive/compulsive shopping and debt
Other certificates include Brief Solution Focused Counselling, Systemic Constellations (family relationships), Embodied-Relational Therapy (looking at physical symptoms of emotional distress), and Writing Therapy.
I have trained and practised in alcohol and drug addiction.
