I am a person centred counsellor. I have a CPCAB (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I enjoy working with students and young adults. As well as running my private practice, I work in student mental health and wellbeing services at the University of York. I have previously volunteered as a Young People's Mentor for York Mind.
I have worked in higher education for nearly 10 years and have a good understanding of the particular pressures and life experiences students can face. I also have experience of working with clients with more general emotional health concerns through my counselling work in the voluntary sector.
I also teach CPCAB L2 and L3 counselling courses for York City Council.
Prior to working as a counsellor, I worked as a manager in public and academic library and information services. I love books and read widely to keep my counselling knowledge and skills up to date.
I am fully insured, hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office.
