I am a qualified counsellor with a Diploma in Counselling validated by the University of Gloucestershire and a post-qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents.
I have a Certificate of Proficiency with the BACP and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP (Reg)) and CCYP (Counselling Children and Young People). I am also an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (MNCS (Accred)).
I am also a member of CAPPP (Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Private Practice).
I regularly attend CPD courses, receive monthly supervision for both my voluntary and private client work and I am fully insured for private practice.
I am currently training to become a supervisor and would welcome enquiries from student or qualified counsellors and other professionals such as teachers, healthcare professionals or pastoral care workers who would benefit from a supervisory space to reflect on their practice. There would be a low cost fee for this service.
I have experience of working with a wide range of clients (children, adolescents and adults) with problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement and loss, spiritual issues, the impact of trauma or abuse, low self-esteem, self-harm, relationship difficulties and marital breakdown.
I have been counselling adults and young people in private practice since 2015 and started volunteer counselling with adults in a large Bristol counselling agency since January 2013. I have been the school counsellor at a Bristol post 16 centre since June 2015 and since September 2017 have been working with Focus Counselling as part of a counselling team in two private schools in Bath with children and young people aged 5-18©
I have 3 years experience of delivering person centred training courses at Introductory level as well as facilitating skills workshops for Certificate Level counselling students.
