I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and has successfully completed the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Certificate of Proficiency.
I have also gained a further diploma in counselling children and young people which involves a very different way of working, but has helped me broaden my knowledge of therapeutic techniques which can be used across all ages.
I continue to practice in the voluntary sector, and am committed to giving something back to the community. I have absolutely no artistic talent, but I recently jointly ran a 15 week art in therapy course; this was a real eye opener for me, and I now enjoy using various simple creative techniques in my work, but only if it’s something you’d be comfortable with doing too.
