After studying psychology I went on to complete my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Liverpool John Moores University. This was a BACP accredited course taught at Masters level. I am a full member of the BACP and on the accredited register of counsellors and psychotherapists compiled by BACP. I also have a certificate in Counselling Supervision and provide supervision for both professionals and trainee counsellors and psychotherapists.
My last 7 years have been spent in the addiction field with the last 3 being as clinical lead as well as maintaining my private practice on Rodney Street Liverpool where I am part of a network of therapists who provide support for fellow professionals.
I was initially trained in a Rogerian, sometimes called person-centred, theoretic base, but like many other therapists I now offer a more integrative approach if and when required. I have further training and expertise in Transactional Analysis (TA), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Gestalt as well as a passion for Transpersonal psychology.
I believe that, although clients present with many different problems, issues, hurts and hang-ups, there’s usually one common cause. Helping to discover and overcome that is where my passion and skills are utilised. I will walk alongside you while you discover the triggers and responses that affect your personal life and self worth. This service is provided in confidence and is entirely ethically sound adhering to the guidelines of BACP’s ethical framework.
I provide support to individuals and groups including: Workshops, Individuals, Corporate and HR teams or online via SKYPE
