Clinical Counselling Experience
Since qualifying in 2001, I have worked as a Counsellor in general community settings with a wide variety of clients and also in specialist agencies for young people and with adults with alcohol problems.
The range of issues I have worked with include anxiety, depression, stress, loss, bereavement, self and identity, pregnancy and childbirth, trauma, abuse, illness, eating disorders, addiction, self-harm, mental health, sexuality and relationships.
I currently work as a Counsellor, supporting students, in a University Counselling Service.
I am a Registered and Accredited member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and all of my counselling practice adheres to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I am experienced in working with clients in short term and long term therapy and in conducting counselling assessments.
I set up Hyperemesis Counselling in 2016 following my own personal experiences of this medical condition and my academic research in this field, which identified a lack of psychotherapeutic support options for women affected by pregnancy sickness.
