My background and qualifications.
I am a qualified counsellor. I hold a Clinical Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling. Clinical means my training included a large amount of face to face client work (often with clients suffering from stress, anxiety, depression arising from trauma, abuse, family or personal issues and events) , and psychodynamic refers to how we interact with each other in ways often outside of our consciousness, and often shaped by our earlier lives.
I trained at the Metanoia Institute.
Over the years I have also worked as a counsellor / therapist for MIND, EACS, and MCPS. I still do some work for other organisations alongside my private practice.
I am a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), one of the main professional bodies for counsellors and counselling. I abide by their code of ethics.
