I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist, having completed a four year Masters-level integrative humanistic training with the Bridge Pastoral Foundation. Prior to this training I completed a Certificate Course in Psychodynamic Theory and Counselling Skills at Reading University. I am a Registered Member of the BACP, whose Code of Ethics I adhere to. I am in regular supervision with a UKCP accredited supervisor, and am fully insured.
I have worked with adult clients in private practice and in voluntary counselling services, and with young people (11-18) in school and GP surgery settings.
I believe that my experience as a Registered Nurse, particularly in the fields of palliative care and neurological conditions, contributes significantly to my ability to empathise and understand the challenges and difficulties of life. I am particularly interested in matters relating to health, disability, the end of life, grief, loss and bereavement, as well as the experience of being a family carer.
