“We all have times in our lives when we struggle to cope with distressing experiences and feelings. Counselling enables us to make sense of these issues and make the changes needed to live a more fulfilled live”
I began my training in 2006 and gained a BA (Hons) in counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a Person-Centred counsellor and initially started counselling at MIND, a mental health charity in 2008. Then moved onto work at Havering and Brentwood Bereavement Services counselling both adults and children. I have experience of counselling in numerous schools and recently organised and facilitated group therapy for adults with disordered eating. I am currently working in private practice and I also counsel children on a weekly basis in a primary school setting.
I have a keen interest in personal and professional development and gained certificates and additional training in Art Therapy, CBT, Bereavement, The Power of Self Esteem, boundaries, Anti-Discriminatory Practice & Diversity, Ethical Dilemmas and Childhood Trauma.
I also gained experience in working with families and individuals as a care support worker for Havering Crossroads, a leading respite care charity. This work enabled me to understand the everyday experiences and difficulties that carers face on a daily basis, while caring for family members with disabilities, dementia and strokes.
As a Registered Member of BACP I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counsellling and Psychotherapy.
