Counselling became my career after seeing how life-changing & powerful it can be when you finally find your voice. Life isn't easy! Sometimes things aren't always linear or within our control, but what we can have a grasp on, is choosing how we process the journey, regain strength and see how we can move forwards.
My professional qualifications include a Level 5 Diploma in Humanistic Counselling from the University of Chichester. I have vast experience of working with adults within the NHS and Higher Education context. I attend regular clinical supervision to ensure that I work ethically and productively with my clients.
I am a highly experienced BAME and LGTBQ counsellor. I actively attend professional career development seminars / webinars, to benefit my client work. I hold my 'Introduction to Mindfulness (MBSR) Certificate'. This enables me to incorporate mindfulness techniques within sessions with my clients when suitable.
I am the founder & creator of the wellbeing blog #refresh and I sit on professional committees within Hampshire focussing on equality, diversity & wellbeing within the workplace.
