I have a post graduate Diploma in Counseling and Psychotherapy from Liverpool John Moores University and am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPsS). In 2012 I became an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work using the BACP Code of Ethics. I attend courses regularly as I belive I am always learning. My further training has included areas such as: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Coping with Shame and Working with Survivors of Abuse.
I worked for over 10 years as a counsellor with a charity that specialises in supporting survivors of recent and historical rape and childhood sexual abuse. I understand how difficult it can seem to share personal aspects of life. I work with adults and young people over 13 years.
I have a current CRB check for the charity and for my work when I was a volunteer at a Children's Centre in the Wirral.
