My work is an honour and a privilege
After completing a BSc. and PhD. in Psychology at the University of Warwick, I moved to the USA to complete a post-doc and work as a research psychologist.
While there I left work to raise a family.
After fourteen years away, I returned to the UK in 2006 and soon began to re-train as a psychotherapist and gained my diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. Since that time I have been a volunteer at Cruse Bereavement and since 2013 have been a volunteer at New Pathways in both Newport and Cardiff.
I have a large portfolio of continuing professional development courses and continue to add to my professional training every year.
I am now trained and accredited to offer telephone and online counselling.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) registration number 199398.
As a member of the BACP I follow their Ethical Framework for Good Practice which sets out the standards I am expected to comply with as a psychotherapy professional.
I have an enhanced DBS certificate.
Our sessions have been life changing
