Membership of Professional Bodies:-

I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and Fellow Member of ISPC (International Society of Professional Counsellors). I have successfully completed the BACP's Certificate of Proficiency assessment exam which gives me eligibility to go onto the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I have many years experience working as a counsellor with clients with a wide range of issues. My experience has been working both in private practice and in busy GP surgeries, where I saw individuals with a varied range of issues that are as unique as they are.  These include, grief & loss, health related issues & terminal illness, relationship problems, separation, divorce, financial and debt related issues, job and study related problems, bullying, depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, infertility, PTSD, abuse, eating disorders and chronic pain.

I have experience working as a volunteer listener for the Samaritans and have dealt with people suffering in a crisis and/or suicidal.  I have been CRB checked.

I also have experience working with local authority referrals, Employee Assistance Programme referrals, NHS referrals, GP referrals, and short term counselling and I have experience in teaching counselling skills, theory and in the use of art in therapy.
