Hi - thank you for looking at my website.
I am a qualified counsellor and hold a Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from the Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC). I am a member of BACP, and an accredited member of UKCP. I am also a member of BCPC and the Oxford Therapy Centre (OTS).
I am an experienced therapist and psychotherapeutic counsellor and have worked with clients from different backgrounds and with a wide range of issues: depression, anxiety, low mood, relationship issues, bereavement (including suicide and drug related deaths), low self-esteem, abuse (sexual and domestic violence), work difficulties, illness and issues around caring.
My counselling background encompasses training and working as a counsellor in a variety of settings. I have worked as a bereavement volunteer with Cruse Oxford and also volunteered for Victim Support. I volunteered as a counsellor at a family centre in Swindon (Butterflies), and am now employed as a counsellor at a family counselling service in Newbury. In addition I also work in private practice, and work from therapy centres in Wantage, Witney and Oxford. I also hold a Level 5 certificate in counselling children and young people, and see young people aged 13 and older.
In addition to working face to face I also offer online counselling on either, zoom, skype or phone.
I lived on the Isle of Man for close on six years and in particular would like to offer online counselling (via skype, zoom or phone) for those living on the island.
Prior to counselling I worked as a music teacher in both primary and secondary schools. I also teach privately.
