I worked as an IT specialist in various blue chip companies for over 15 years before completing my counselling training.
I decided to train as a counsellor after undertaking my own personal counselling and experiencing first hand the changes I could achieve with the support and encouragement of a counsellor. I was in training for over 4 years and graduated with a BA (Hons) in Integrative Relational Counselling from the University of Middlesex.
As part of my private practice, I work with South East Coast Ambulance NHS Trust as a specialist provider of counselling services for their employees. I also volunteer as a counsellor for the in-house employee counselling service for the Royal Borough of Kingston and the Kingston Women’s Centre charity.
My clients have come from a range of different backgrounds and have sought counselling for a wide variety of reasons. Some clients have focused on past events, and others have been looking for support with more current issues. These are some of the issues I have previously worked with:
- Panic Attacks
- Relationship Difficulties
- Work Problems
- Health Worries (including chronic conditions)
- Unwanted / Intrusive Thoughts
This list is not exhaustive, if the issue that is concerning you is not on the list, please feel free to contact me to discuss this.
