I am an Integrative Counsellor and Coach, and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I hold a Bsc in Psychology and Criminology, Level 2-3 in Counselling Skills and Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Coaching. I work in accordance with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy’s Code of Ethics and Practice.
I have extensive experience within the Mental Health field. I have worked in several settings, including; Education, the Criminal Justice System (National Probation Service, Magistrates Courts, Police Stations, Prisons), Victim support, Community Rehabilitation and Outreach work. In addition I have provided support to employees in the workplace, something I feel very passionate about as a result of my own journey, and the lack of services available in the workplace.
I work in an integrative way, meaning that I draw attitudes, skills and interventions from different approaches. I have a keen interest in Trauma, Sex, Relationships, Culture and Identity. I have spent many years working with male clients, which influenced my interest in toxic masculinity and the issues men face in society in regards to their mental health needs. I feel strongly about supporting people find connections and meaning in their lives; in their physical, spiritual, psychological and social dimension.
