I graduated over 20 years ago with an MA (Hons) and spent my early career working in industry. However, a combination of events coupled with my interest in people and helping others, led me to start my training as a therapist over six years ago. I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling from Iron Mill College in Exeter. Having experienced my own therapy over the years, I have personal experience of what an incredible process it can be, bringing understanding, resolution and much greater fulfillment.
I am registered with the BACP, the organization, which oversees Counsellors and Psychotherapists in the UK and ensures its members are working ethically to their standards of practice.
I worked as a counsellor at Oakhaven Hospice in Lymington helping individuals with grief, cancer, childhood problems, depression, confidence and relationship issues. I currently work, voluntarily, for a local counselling agency helping individuals with depression, anxiety and trauma.
