ABOUT ME

Many thanks for taking the time to visit my page. A bit about myself - I am a fully qualified and experienced BACP registered counsellor and supervisor here in Coventry. I have been counselling clients for 11 years.

I have worked in different professions and held roles in a number of areas - ranging from adult education, supervision, lecturing and psychotherapy. Previous organisations I have worked for include the Priory and the NHS.

I am an integrative therapist - which basically means I use a variety of techniques to help my clients deal with issues they may be experiencing. Integrative therapy interests me so much that I have helped set up a degree course for Coventry university to help others pursue this form of counselling.

The types of therapy I use are Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Solution-Focused, and Person centred approaches. It's about creating the most effective therapeutic approach for you.

I started my counselling training in 2003 when I studied for a Certificate in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. The following year, I completed by Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. From 20004 to 2006, I completed initial Counselling Skills Training. From 2006 to 2008, I completed a Counselling Diploma (Existential, Gestalt and Person-Centred). In 2009, I completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology with Keele University and the following year, I achieved my MSc in Counselling Psychology.

Since completing my Counselling Training, I have taken courses in Counselling Supervision, Hypnotherapy, Life-Coaching, Coaching and Mentoring and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

I have just passed my level 4 in Nutrition and so am now insured to offer advice and guidance in nutrition to help you with your weight and fitness goals. I am also four months into a Specialist Diploma in working with children and young people.

In my coaching sessions, I use a variety of models such as Person-Centred, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, CBT, Transactional Analysis, Solution-Focused, and Gestalt.
