I chose to train in counselling and psychotherapy beacuse I have always been naturally interested in people, motivated to help others, and fascinated by how our minds work. Prior to qualifying as a therapist, I found I most enjoyed supporting people, face-to-face, on a one-to-one basis.
Previously, I have worked for a variety of organisations, small, medium and large, both public and private, including at senior level. I bring my broader career and life experience to my counselling and psychotherapy practice.
In addition to practising privately as a psychotherapist and counsellor between Chester and Nantwich, the majority of my experience has been gained working within an NHS staff counselling service in the West Midlands.
I specialise in working one-to-one with adults, on an open-ended basis or for an agreed period, short and longer term. I have helped a wide range of people with a broad spectrum of issues, and I'm generally happy to work with whatever you may bring.
My professional training, which allowed me to gain registration as a counsellor and psychotherapist, included a British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy ('BACP') accredited course at postgraduate level:
(Staffordshire University) BACP Accredited Course.
(The University of Manchester).
I am currently studying for an MSc in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, part-time.
I am a qualified Mentor, have specialist telephone counselling training, and postgraduate qualifications in Careers Guidance and in Law.
I am passionate about keeping up-to-date with the latest evidence-based research, and CPD training...back...
