I am a member of BACP and I subscribe to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice which includes the requirement of regular professional supervision, confidentiality and ongoing professional development. I carry full liability insurance.
I have attained MSc level qualifications in both Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Accredited) and Analytical Behaviour Analysis and have combined over 10 years’ experience of working with clients on an individual face to face basis. I have been fortunate enough to work with young people and adults in community centre, primary school (+10 years old), secondary school and college environments. In private practice and other settings, I can offer support of an open-ended nature, as well as time limited, focussed support consisting of 6 to 12 sessions, dependant on individual requirements. There is the opportunity to receive telephone and online counselling for clients that are suitable and for those that are affected by disability.
As a person from a culturally diverse background I believe that an understanding and knowledge of diversity in all its forms can help the therapeutic relationship to be effective. I have experience in working with a broad range of clients including those who find social communication and interaction challenging. My shared experience of counselling parents of children with Autism Spectrum condition has been inspirational.
Depression, bereavement, anxiety, physical and emotional abuse, anger, self-worth, stress, cultural conflict, loneliness, self-harm, mental trauma, panic-attacks, eating disorders and work environment issues are just some of the issues I have experience of working with.
