My qualifications and experience
I studied at The University of Chichester gaining a BA (Hons) degree in Humanistic Counselling, a diploma in Counselling and a certificate in Counselling skills.
I also studied at Chichester College, gaining a diploma in Social sciences containing subjects, Psychology, Sociology and English Literature.
In addition to these qualifications I have had additional training in Anxiety, Suicide, Safeguarding, Sexuality, Gender and Expressive Arts. I also hold the BACP Certificate of Proficiency.
As such, as well as being a registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), my therapeutic work is conducted in line with the Code of Ethics & Practice.
Every year I regularly attend courses and workshops in order to develop professionally, covering a whole range of different psychological approaches to Counselling and Psychotherapy and various psychological disorders.
My approach to Counselling
I work as a Humanistic counsellor and offer CBT integrating the different approaches to counselling, adapting to meet my clients' needs. My work contains core elements that are respectful, caring and non-judgemental. I work with my clients to enable positive outcomes and help them to move forward to a place that they feel more comfortable. Whilst I work with many difficulties people experience I have vast experience in working with anxiety, OCD and depression.
