Within my counselling profession, I have worked with adults and young people who have faced difficulties from substance abuse, mental/physical/sexual abuse, self-esteem, depression and relationship issues. I am a member of the European Society for Trauma and Dissociation [ESTD] and have experience of working with Dissociative Identity Disorder. However, my work is not specific to these issues alone.
Prior to, during and after my training, I worked within the health, social and criminal justice sector. For nearly five years I have worked with organisations specialising in the rehabilitation of drug and alcohol users and prolific offenders. I currently support children, young people and their families who are facing domestic and social difficulties and/or behavioural and attachment issues using Theraplay® activities.
I am an accredited registrant with the National Counselling Society and work to and alongside their professional and ethical standards. I undertake regular supervision and ongoing professional development to ensure a high standard of working.
