Qualifications, Training & Experience
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their Code of Practice. I am also a UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist. Please note: an Accredited BACP member would have undergone a rigorous process of accreditation and is a competent practitioner.
I am a trainee member of the Gestalt Psychotherapy & Training Institute (GPTI) and abide by their Code of Ethics and Professional Practice.
I initially trained as a Person Centred Counsellor but decided I wanted to further my studies to increase my understanding of wider and more complex mental health issues. I therefore decided to train as a Gestalt Psychotherapist. I have completed 8 years additional training in Gestalt Psychotherapy (postgraduate level) leading to a Diploma in Psychotherapy, UKCP registration and GPTI accreditation. I completed CORE training in Gestalt Psychotherapy (2012).

Additional interests and areas of study include trauma and attachment.
I have a particular interest in trauma and abuse and I spent 5 years working for a charity that supported victims of abuse. In addition I helped victims of domestic violence at the Women's Aid and I have worked within the Substance Misuse Team in Shropshire.
I now work exclusively in private practice.
