I qualified with a First-class Honours degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling from Middlesex University.
My particular interests include issues arising from boarding-school education, which is an area that I have specialist training in, and in all forms of addiction, including addiction to substances, eating, shopping, the internet and sex. As an adopted person, I have had extensive experience helping birth parents, adoptive parents and adopted people. Additionally, I incorporate mindfulness and relaxation techniques into my practice to help with stress management.
Continued Professional Development:
- Workshops run by Boarding School Survivors; and training on issues relating to boarding-school education (Dorset Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
- Addiction workshops run by the Meadows, Arizona and KeyStone Centre, Pennsylvania.
- Mindfulness training for counsellors (Dialogue Consultancy).
