Over the last twelve years I have worked as a counsellor in a variety of settings in Wiltshire, Hampshire & Dorset. These include a crisis & support centre, a mental health service, schools and a university.
Within these settings I've worked with individuals, couples, children and adolescents.
I have a particular training and interest in working with children and adolescents (5 upwards) using a variety of techniques and creative mediums to enable them to express their emotions through.
My background previously to counselling was in social care within family support and in the voluntary sector as a coordinator in a women’s centre.
I have had a private practice since October 2009 in Salisbury and I'm also a partner and co-founder of 'Talkabout' a counselling service in Schools.
