Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling,
BA Hons Degree
PGCE in secondary Education,
I also hold an update Enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) certificate.
As an integrative counsellor I will use approaches from psychodynamic and person-centred theories adapting them to the individual needs of the client. How we work will develop over time as the therapeutic relationship develops between us, we may explore how your past has impacted and influenced your present or we may focus very much on the patterns of the hear and now.
Former careers as a dancer, a photographer and then a teacher has given me a wealth of experience of the creative process, a belief in our creative potential, and a visual language that continues to inform my work now. From working within education I have a clear understanding of the many levels of stress and anxiety teachers encounter throughout their careers and the impact of that on their work/life balance.
I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics
