I’m qualified in Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling by Buckinghamshire College Group – University Campus Aylesbury Vale.
I hold a Certificate of Competence in Counselling for Depression (CfD) – IAPT Licensed by the University of Nottingham
I have taken additional training on:
- BACP Loss, grief and working with end-of-life clients.
- Treating Generalised Anxiety Disorder GAD and Panic Attacks.
- Depression: A Compassionate View.
- Suicide Prevention training.
I offer long-term and short-term solution-focus counselling for individuals over the age of 18, living in the area of Hertfordshire.
I work with different areas of concerns, specializing in bereavement and grief, anxiety and depression, managing self-confidence and self-criticism as well as building low self-esteem and understanding relationships issues within personal, family and working environments.
To get the most out of being in counselling, I would recommend that the sessions take place in a face-to-face basis but, if occasionally, your circumstances prevent you from attending your scheduled counselling session personally, I can offer online or telephone counselling as a suitable alternative.
I’m a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I’m committed to my continuous professional development and I attend regular Supervision sessions in order to offer the best ethical and professional standards of service. I carry full professional liability insurance and an up-to-date enhanced DBS clearance.
Alongside running my private practice, I work for The Counselling Foundation in St. Albans as Counselling for Depression counsellor within the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme (IAPT), set out by the NHS.
My counselling experience also includes working as a volunteer bereavement counsellor at The Counselling Foundation in St. Albans, volunteer counsellor at Hertfordshire MIND Network in Watford, and volunteer telephone support for the Counselling and Bereavement department at the Peace Hospice Care in Watford.
