About Me

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 and am also the clinical lead for the child and family team. I have also delivered counselling training for the organisation. I was a trustee for the Biography and Social Development Trust (2015 - 2017).

 

I am currently doing an MSc in Systemic Psychotherapy at Birmingham University with the NHS Trust. 

 

I see clients in Stroud and am occasionallly available for Skype sessions for individual work.

 

I am registered and accredited with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk) and am a member of AFT (Association of Family Therapists).
