In addition to private practice I am a sessional counsellor with the Student Counselling Service at Royal Holloway, University of London, and a counsellor with the Windsor & Maidenhead Youth and Community Counselling Service.
I am a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), meaning my post-qualification experience has met their higher standard for Accreditation. I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the counselling professions.
Prior to becoming a counsellor, I initially worked for a large broadcasting corporation, progressing to a complex managerial role responsible for multiple teams across a busy 24/7 environment. I understand from first-hand experience the pressures of a demanding workplace. I decided to change direction, undertaking counselling training in addition to teaching yoga and relaxation while raising my children.
I have over 1,500 hours of counselling experience, regularly attend CPD (Continuining Professional Development) training, and have appropriate professional supervision, insurance, and a DBS Enhanced Certificate (2017). Click here to find me on the BACP register, Certificate No: 094296.
