My training and personal counselling I have undertaken has helped me to become self aware on some lifes issues that have been thrown my way. I can now implement my qualifications and draw on my own lifes experiences to be fully present and congruent in the counselling room. I believe I relate and communicate with others in a relational, sensitive, empathic and compassionate way.
As well as running my private practice in Cosham and Southsea I am a volunteer at Off The Record, which is a charity run counselling service for 11-25 year olds. I can see myself being at Off The Record for many years to come. This is mainly because I believe it is important to give back and support the younger generation.
I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor. I have certificates for:
- basic counselling skills for level 1,2 and 3
- Diploma in Gestalt/ Humanistic Counselling
I am fully insured and have monthly supervision to ensure I am working effectively and ethically.
I am always looking for ways to develop myself further by attending counselling courses and workshops:
- Self Harming
- Depression and Anxiety
- Safe Guarding Children and Young Adults
- Drum Workshop
- CPD on Training
- Creative work (Sand Tray and 2 Chair Work)
- Autism Awareness
- The Tree of Life (narrative therapy)
