About Me

Past Experience and Training

My past experience has included working with couples for Relate, with adults for the NHS in GP surgeries and working with children and families in CAMHs. I have also worked for charities including Place2be with primary aged children and with families for Family Action, also offering parenting support.

My initial counselling training was integrative, meaning that I draw on a range of counselling theories. I have a Diploma in Applied Systemic Theory (family therapy) from the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, supporting my work with couples and families.

I am a registered and accredited Member of BACP (www.bacp.co.uk) and abide by their code of ethics. I am also DBS checked and insured.
