About the counsellor
My experience stretches back some 20 years and includes working as an occupational counsellor in the private sector; working in the NHS as a primary care counsellor and as part of the counselling team in higher education.
I have worked in counselling settings supporting survivors of trauma, rape and sexual abuse, loss and bereavement. For the past 12 years I have been employed by a leading university in the West Midlands and work as part of the university counselling team for students and staff. My work has included running workshops and CBT based groups for Panic Disorder, Perfectionism, Assertiveness and Depression.
I have participated in a professional teacher training with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, Bangor University. I run an introduction to a Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy group.
