I originally trained as a Bereavement Counselor, and had 5 years experience working with the bereaved and terminally ill. I run various courses for Colleges and Private concerns on Stress Management, Anger Management and Self Esteem/Assertiveness and have taught on both the Certificate and Diploma Courses in Counselling. I am now working with S-o-T Council (Adult Learning ) delivering the Introduction to Counselling Skills Course, Applied Counselling Skills, Active Listening Courses, Families Listening and Talking, Cognitive Behavior Therapy Course, Colour and Crystal Therapy and Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping).

I am a Partner in a Counselling Service based in Staffordshire assisting both small/middle sized business and Schools in providing Employee Assisted Programmes. This offers support services to Employers and Head Teachers addressing the twin focus of employee well being and organisational performance by offering Counselling, Coaching, Mediation and Training /staff development. The Service also offers courses in Basic communications within families and understanding the teenage years.

My original training was as a Person Centred Counsellor but I have since undergone training in Rapid Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy and am also a practitioner in Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping)

I attend regular counselling supervision, hold Professional Indemnity Assurance and am committed to taking Continuing Professional Development.
