Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked within my own private practice for the last two years, working with Adults and young people. Previously, since 2012 I have worked in primary schools providing early intervention for students aged 5-11 years. Additionally I have experience of providing counselling to teenagers, supporting them through the challenging transition years. I have also worked with Adults within Domestic Abuse support houses, some of which had experienced complex trauma. Finally, working for the NHS within IAPT, I was able to focus on providing CBT therapy for Adult patients suffering with Anxiety and Depression.
