BSc Humanistic Counselling
First Class (Metanoia Institute)
I trained at the Metanoia Institute in London, one of the leading counselling and psychotherapy institutions in the UK. The BSc Humanistic Counselling spans three years and is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, one of the UK professional association for counsellors, of which I am a registered member.
Before becoming a counsellor I lectured in philosophy and I have a PhD in the subject. My philosophical training helps me reflect clearly, means I have a firm grip on counselling theory and sharpens my professional work.
All of my work is supervised by a qualified supervisor as part of my commitment to practising ethically and to ensuring high standards. My sessions and supervision are both confidential.
My Experience and Special Interests
I have been a counsellor at The Rawstorn Road Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy for several years. I am also a visiting therapist at a local residential children's home. I have done some work for Emmaus, a charity supporting the homeless.
I am trained to help with a range of concerns including, but not restricted to, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger, low mood, social, family and relationship issues.
I have special interests in bereavement, loss and abuse (past, sexual, domestic, bullying etc.).
I work with adults and children (aged 10+) and have a special interest in working with young people (aged 13-19).
I hold an enhanced DBS background check, available on request.
I am an LGBTQ+ positive practitioner.
