I completed my postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy at York St John University, a course that is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). The BACP is the main professional body for psychotherapy, counselling and talking therapies in the UK.
Following qualification I have completed various training courses to develop my knowledge further, on subjects including Trauma, Domestic Abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Hoarding, Supporting people who hear voices, and Bereavement.
I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework. This ensures I work responsibly and professionally, and follow the code of conduct outlined in the framework. For example I receive regular clinical supervision to critically reflect on my work with clients and all aspects of my counselling practice.
