My background is in Nursing in the National Health Service, where I worked for 28 years. Whilst maintaining some nursing responsibilities, in the latter years I single-handedly ran a specialist counselling department, offering counselling to both staff and to clients referred by local GPs. I also co-wrote a basic skills counselling course and a Certificate in Counselling course (which was recognised as entry level for a Masters in Counselling) and delivered these for 7 years via the hospital continuing education department.
My Therapy qualifications are:-
PhD in Psychology (for research into the mind-body connection)
MA in Counselling
Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy
Accredited Advanced EFT Practitioner
Certificates in Supervision, Systemic Practice, Traumatic Incident Reduction Therapy, Professional Practice in Spiritual Companionship
I also hold nursing qualifications as follows. Registered General Nurse, Registered Nurse for People with Learning Disability, Diploma in Nursing, and am an accredited Facilitator with Penny Brohn UK (formerly Penny Brohn Cancer Care)
Survivors of childhood abuse
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
The Emotional Impact of physical illness (especially Cancer)
Dissociative Identity Disorder
Personal and spiritual growth and development
I have a large 'tool-box' of skills and approaches, from which I I seek to co-create, with each client, a unique, tailor-made approach to therapy, so that that each client gets the therapy they need.
