My background and qualifications.
I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor. I hold a Clinical Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and a Masters degree (MSc.) in Psychotherapy. 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.
Over the years I have also worked as a counsellor / therapist for mental health charities such as MIND, EACS, and MCPS. I still do some work for other business organisations alongside my private practice.
I am an accredited member of The United Kingdom Counsel for Psychotherapy (UKCP), member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and certified by The European Association of Psychotherapy.
I also hold other Master and Bachelor Degrees.
