My qualifications and experience
My professional status is that I am an MBACP, which means I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and adhere to the BACP ethical framework for practice .
My name can be found on the Professional Standards Authority accredited register.
My qualifications include a BA Honours Degree in Integrative Counselling and a Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. These qualifications include the study and clinical application of different theoretical models of counselling and psychotherapy including Person Centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, CBT, Transactional Analysis and the linking of Neuroscience to psychotherapy.
I also hold certificates for professionally working with people who have been affected by domestic violence and abuse and sexual violence and abuse and people who have been affected by the effects of crime including bereavement.
All of my professional counselling and psychotherapy work has been one to one with Primary and Secondary Care NHS patients. This includes on site clinic work and also community work, visiting Secondary Care patients in their own homes and liaising with their broader mental health teams to manage and support patients’ mental health difficulties.
At the outset of my counselling career I also worked for four years as a community volunteer for Victim Support's Wolverhampton and Dudley Branches.
