Qualifications

I am an Accredited and Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy MBACP (Accred).  I have a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling accredited by the BACP and WPF, am fully insured and have a current CRB certificate.  

Working in Private Practice as well as in Charitable Organisations and Higher Education Counselling University Services has enabled me to develop my knowledge and skills across a broad spectrum.  This experience, alongside Social Work training, highly respected professional training and on-going CPD has facilitated an in-depth knowledge with respect to the many and varied issues presented by clients. 

I have experience of working with a diverse client base, with both young people and adults on an individual basis. The length of time working together can vary according to a client's needs.  I am experienced in working both short term focused work and longer term open ended counselling.

My private practices are based in Highfield, Southampton and Winchester, Hampshire.
