I have worked mainly with adults within a number of settings, including private practice. For ten years I was the Therapeutic Services Manager for a counselling service for women affected by domestic violence. I then worked for IAPT services and I am now in private practice as well as working for The University of Nottingham.
As a trainer I have taught on a variety of courses within Spirit Project as well as for Further Adult Colleges like Lewisham College and City Lit. I have trained Counsellors from the Certificate level all way to the Diploma including CPD workshops for trainee and qualified practitioners.
Within Spirit Project, I now facilitate my own CPD workshops.
My qualifications are:
Diploma in Counselling (ABC)
MA Counselling and Psychotherapy (University of East London)
PGD Dramatherapy (University of Surrey Roehampton)
Diploma in Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (LEAP)
CBT for Person Centred Counsellor
DBT (Centre of Excellence)
EMDR (EMDR Masterclass)
Intensive Trauma Training (PESI)
Advanced Trauma Training (Wealden Institute)
Solution Focused Therapy (ACAPS)
Mindfulness skills (College of CBT)
I see my role as a therapist to support you through challenges by allowing you to increase self-awareness, healthy coping mechanisms, process traumatic events while also finding ways that best suit your needs.
As an Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist, with Spirit and Sultana, our horses, I strive to offer you an environment that is accepting, reflecting, liberating and healing. I also offer EMDR with Spirit and Sultana but I can also travel to you if you wish me to work with your horses.
As a Dramatherapist, I can offer you a level of therapeutic work that is metaphorical and rich in the tapestry of self-expression. With arts, we could explore any issues that might feel otherwise overwhelming.
