I am a counsellor and psychotherapist accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, a qualified counselling supervisor and a COSCA accredited trainer. I have practised as a counsellor since 2000, working mainly for charities specialising in working with trauma. I also run training courses on counselling.

I love working as a counsellor and feel passionate about the value of counselling. Before developing a private practice I was a senior counsellor managing a team of counsellors in a BACP-accredited service where I worked for 12 years. I also taught on a counselling diploma course and facilitated the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills: Substance Use and Dependence; a course which I developed.

I hold a BACP accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, a certificate in counselling Supervision, PG Cert. in Community Education and an Honours Degree in Psychology. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
