I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and also belong to the HACP (Hampshire Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). Further training each year is mandatory, in order to maintain these professional registrations. All members have undertaken recognised and rigorous training, work to a strict code of practice and ethics and are fully insured to practice.
As well as seeing clients privately, I work with a local organisation called The Bereavement Counselling Charity. I hold a current enhanced disclosure and barring service (DBS) certificate for this organisation.
Previously, I have worked with The Princess Royal Trust for Carers in Hampshire, providing emotional support for carers as well as a tenant's counselling service administered by Radian (a social housing provider) - this work was often with young people from disruptive backgrounds, establishing themselves in their first homes and jobs.
My first career was as a clinical physiologist, specialising in cardiology. I re-trained as a counsellor after raising my family.
I am also a qualified reflexologist and passionate about holistic practice and the mind-body connection.
I have a diploma in reflexology with anatomy and physiology and am a member of the Association of Reflexologists (AoR) and also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).
