I retrained as a therapist mid life having found therapy incredibly useful and life changing myself during my early twenties, which led to my successful first Professional career and better relationships with all those in my personal and work life, and an internal sense of ease and relief, feeling and being OK with myself and others.
- Qualifications & ExperienceAccredited Counselor NCS
Berne Institute Diploma Transactional Analysis Counselling
Berne Institute Certificate in Family / Systemic Therapy
Trained in Nice recognised treatment for Depression
I work with clients privately at home, and have previously worked in a number of low cost community settings along the coastline for often the most disadvantaged people with both therapeutic and mental health issues, and with clients with addiction issues.
I also offer a limited number of domiciliary appointments.
During my therapist training I have gained a lot of experience working compassionately with people in working various settings including Mental Health, severely Autistic Adults and Young People / Residential, as well as spending some time working in Psychiatric wards (non therapy role) so have a good experiential knowledge of the impact on others, partners, carers and families of those labelled / diagnosed as above, as well those who are in these life positions directly.
