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)in Stroud, as part of their child and family team (since 2015). I also work at GCS as a couples counsellor, and have delivered counselling training for the organisation. I have been 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 available for Skype sessions for individual work.
I have a degree in Fine Art, which forms the backdrop for bringing creative tools into my work, and to understanding creative processes.
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).
I have an up to date certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), and am fully insured with Professional Indemnity Insurance and Professional Liability Insurance.
