Having been a trusted listener since I was a young teenager, my first training was with the Samaritans, where I volunteered for just over 4 years. I then began my training to become a Counsellor at MSc level, completing a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling (accredited by the BACP*) at the prestigious Metanoia Institute.
I am also currently a tutor of a CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling course at Varndean College in Brighton.
I've been practicing Person-Centred therapy for seven years in Brighton and Hove, seeing clients privately and for a local counselling charity, As You Are.
Like many therapists I also attend continuing professional development (CPD) courses each year too, to ensure I'm keeping up to date with theoretical and contextual developments.
