Training & Experience

I have been working in the field of mental health for over 15 years and have completed various training programmes, gaining a variety of qualifications, which include a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Studies, a CPCAB Certificate in counselling skills and a First Class Honours degree in Psychology.

In December 2015, I completed my training on The Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of West England.  This is a rigorous, 5 – year applied professional training programme designed to provide doctoral level education leading to a professional qualification as a Counselling Psychologist. The programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I have completed all academic and professional training elements of the course and am currently writing up my doctoral research project for accreditation as a Counselling Psychologist.

I currently practice privately as a counsellor and work at The Priory Hospital in Bristol as a sessional therapist. I have had a variety of clinical roles in both the NHS and specialised services and am regularly and closely supervised by a fully qualified and experienced professional.

I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Registered Member 249224 (MBACP)
