I possess a Diploma in Counselling, awarded at The Gestalt Centre, London. Prior to embarking on the diploma course, I completed a Certificate in Humanistic Counselling, also at The Gestalt Centre. More recently, I have also completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Gestalt Therapy.
Areas of Specialism
I have experience in working with bereavement, domestic violence, relationship issues, university student/staff counselling, Christian/spiritual counselling, along with many other issues. I also have experience of volunteering for Samaritans and working at an Employee Assistance programme (EAP).
My personal approach is holistic, looking at the whole person and your environment, as I believe that nothing happens in isolation. My work is largely influenced by the Gestalt model, focussing on raising awareness and the relationship between us. In addition, I may suggest bringing creativity into our sessions.
I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Your confidentiality will be professionally managed. I have regular supervision and am committed to ongoing personal and professional development.
