I am a BACP Accredited integrative counsellor/psychotherapist, and clinical hypnotherapist, with additional qualifications in CBT. I have worked in this field for over 11 years, and have worked with a vast array of people from all walks of life. Because of this I have worked with a variety of presenting and emerging issues.
Prior to working privately, I have worked in paid employment in this role as a Co-ordinator of a Counselling and Wellbeing Service in a college of further education, an also 2 different universities as a counsellor of students.
Previously to working as a therapist, I had a successful career in management, and feel that this enables me to understand how organisations work and how the culture of an organisation can affect its managers and other employees.

As there is no way of me being able to measure success in my profession, I cannot provide evidence in formal terms. However, I have a good way of building rapport with clients, which is at the heart of good therapy. I have worked successfully with literally hundreds of clients over the years, and have provided over 6000 hours of therapy to a variety of clients in that time.
