I have a Foundation Degree in Counselling which includes a Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling (a combination of Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis) and a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have completed their Certificate of Proficiency. This means that I abide by their code of conduct and ethical standards, ensuring that my work is safe, ethical and competent.
Alongside my private practice, I work part time as a counsellor for young people in a secondary school.
Before becoming a counsellor, I lived in Africa and Asia working for NGOs, the UN and Donor Agencies for over 15 years. I also had my children during this time and know what it is like to bring up a family in such environments. I am now based in Dorset, UK.
