About me

BSc. PG Dip. Accredited MBACP

 

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work to their ethical framework.  In order to gain my ‘Accredited’ status from the BACP, I have had to demonstrate through extensive client hours, essays and ongoing professional learning that I have high standards of knowledge, experience and development.

Alongside my private practice I currently work as a therapist for the Oakdale Centre in Harrogate. My previous experience includes counselling adults in a charitable setting dealing with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma and abuse. In addition, I am experienced in working with teenage students and adults in bereavement, having been a therapist for a college and a bereavement support organisation.

Before becoming a therapist I worked in adoption for over 10 years helping to find families for children and providing support to adopters going through their adoption journey. I therefore have a range of experience in helping people through challenges.
