About Me

 

I have a Masters degree in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling from the University of Hertfordshire. As well as my private practice I have previous extensive experience working within a NHS Community Mental Health Team in Hertfordshire and as an HM Prison's Counsellor.  I have also taught counselling skills in several colleges (including Farnborough College of Technology, Westminsiter Adult Education Service and Hertford Regional College).

 

I regularly attend  training seminars and talks to ensure my knowledge and practice is continuously updated and enhanced.

 

My practice is based near Newbury in Berkshire.

 

When seeking a psychotherapist/counsellor to work with you it is important they are supported by and/or accredited with a professional (governing) body, this ensures they have the appropriate training and experience.  I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP): www.bacp.co.uk and I abide by their code of ethics.
