I first began working as a therapist in 1999 for a youth counselling service. In 2001 I began working for the NHS where I work with clients who have experienced a high degree of trauma in their lives and present with a wide variety of issues. More recently I have also started my own private practice which enables a more collaborative approach to the way I work with my clients. Whilst studying for my degree, I developed a specific knowledge of attachment problems, loss and bereavement. 

I have previously taught an ‘Introduction to Counselling’ course and was a guest tutor on a Counselling Diploma course.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. My qualifications include a BA (Hons) in Counselling, an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and a Certificate in Counselling Theory and Practice. I regularly take part in counselling workshops and am committed to my professional development.I receive regular clinical supervision, which is a requirement of the BACP, to ensure I continue to work ethically and effectively.
