I qualified in 2004 with an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and gained a further qualification with Relate as a Couple Counsellor in 2006. I gained Accreditation and Registration with BACP in 2008.
Since 2004 until 2016 I worked as a counsellor in a local Further Education Counselling Service, giving me a breadth of experience in counselling Adults and Young People about a wide variety of difficulties they were facing and all with their own reasons for continuing with or returning to education.
I hold a teaching qualification and have taught on counselling skills courses, delivered sessions in the community on communication skills for organisations such as; Nottinghamshire Police Force, Derbyshire Child Minders and Derby City Council Young Peoples Services and set up a Peer Support Group for Young People.
Alongside this I have developed a Private Practice.
Abiding by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, I have Clinical Supervision on a monthly basis and regularly update my practice by undertaking professional development activities throughout each year.
