About Me

I have counselled in…

A Sixth Form College.
A Specialist Bereavement Counselling Agency.
NHS Talking Therapies for MIND (Mental Health Charity.
GP Surgeries.

Most of my teaching career was spent working as an outreach and onsite teacher of young people who were school refusing or who were mentally unwell which means I am skilled at working empathically with both adults and adolescents.

I have a DBS Certificate to cover working with both children and vulnerable adults.

As well as my private practice I currently work part-time for a counselling charity as a Family and School Liaison where – amongst other things – I am in the process of facilitating Popup Caf├ęs for Secondary Schools to normalise the subject of mental wellbeing and how to achieve it both for ourselves and those around us.

I also volunteer one day a week for the NHS via the MIND Charity where I counsel GP and self-referred adult clients with common mental health problems.
