I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
My experience includes working as a Counsellor for Wiltshire Mind where I gained vital knowledge of working with people with various mental health issues. I have also facilitated mental health support groups. In my role as a Parent Support Adviser I have worked with families in a solution focused and therapeutic way, with the aim to provide better outcomes for children growing up in today’s society. This has given me in-depth understanding of the problems that families and young people are facing on a daily basis.
I have co-written and presented ‘Effective Communication with Young People’ Workshops for schools. This emerged through a belief that children and young people cannot focus on their education if they are struggling emotionally.
I provide Supervision to Counsellors and people from various caring professions including School staff and Alternative Therapy Professionals
In line with BACP ethical requirements, I am fully insured and attend Supervision on a fortnightly basis to ensure that I am working ethically and in your best interest. I attend regular training events keeping my practice current and updated. I hold an Enhanced DBS certificate.
