I am an experienced counsellor working in private practice since 2008.
Alongside this I run courses on Biography Work, and have contributed to the Biographical Counselling training programme. As well as my private practice I work as a family counsellor at Gloucester Counselling Service (GCS) as part of their child and family team. I also work at GCS as a couples counsellor, and deliver counselling training for the organisation. I have also been a Trustee for a charity for the last 2 years.
In 2012 I co-founded a therapy centre in Stourbridge, which offers a wide range of therapies for emotional, mental and physical support. This is my Stourbridge practice see more here: http://www.elysiacentre.org/.
I see clients both in Stourbridge and Stroud, and am also available for Skype sessions.
I have a degree in Fine Art, which forms the backdrop for bringing creative tools into my work, and to understanding creative processes.
I have an up to date certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), (formerly CRB) and am fully insured with Professional Indemnity Insurance and Professional Liability Insurance.
