Following an early career in education where I worked as a secondary school teacher, I began training in Person-Centred Counselling in 2007. I was awarded a Diploma in Counselling in February 2011. I value Rogers’ basic principles as the foundation for productive and successful therapeutic work, while exploring a variety of other techniques, such as Play Therapy, to enhance the work that I do.
In 2014 I achieved BACP accreditation and also completed a Diploma in Counselling Supervision, following an integrative approach which incorporates the Person-Centred model, with elements of Kadushin and Carroll.
In addition, I completed a specialist Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People in December 2015, following the SPICC model (sequentially planned integrative counselling for children).
Currently I work part time as a counsellor at the University of Liverpool, and since 2012 I have had a part time contract to provide counselling at a high school in Cheshire for children aged 11 – 18, where I set up and established a professional and busy service for students. I work with a variety of presenting issues, including suicidal risk and self-harm.
I also have a small private practice providing supervision and counselling in Southport.
