In 2006, I completed a four-year core training in psychotherapy at WPF Therapy in London. I subsequently spent a further year at the Tavistock, also in London, deepening my therapeutic responses to clients presenting with trauma and PTSD.
In the years since, I have worked as a therapist in the NHS and the voluntary sector; maintained a private practice; and have been a clinical manager of counselling services. I am registered and accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and abide by their code of ethics. I am also a professional member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).
I am actively engaged in further enhancing my practice by attending regular supervision, as well as attending workshops and seminars providing continuing professional development. I am currently pursuing BACP accreditation in supervision.
I have degrees from Teesside, Glasgow and Reading universities.
I offer counselling in Kendal on Tuesdays; and in Kirkby Lonsdale on Tuesday evenings & Wednesday mornings.
