My own personal experience of counselling and then psychotherapy came many years ago when I was having emotional problems as a young woman; I felt unable to make sense of the world and how to ‘be’ in it and wondered if the sadness, depression and anxiety would ever change in me. The immense help I gained from therapy convinced me that this was my life’s work. I trained first as a counsellor and then my move from London to the beautiful Cotswold countryside prompted a re-evaluation and I embarked on training as a psychotherapist.
My counselling diploma draws on the Person-Centred approach and once qualified I gained a broad experience of client work within a G.P practice, agency work and in private practice.
I trained at Metanoia Institute for my Diploma and MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy and I am fully registered with UKCP.
I hold a Certificate in Supervision from CSTD in Bath and I have extensive experience as a tutor on the BCPC Accredited Counselling Diploma.
