Between June 2019 and January 2022 I was part of the team at the Richmond Borough MIND Psychotherapy & Counselling Service volunteering to provide individual psychotherapy/counselling for clients weekly. This included peer/1:1 supervision aligned to the BACP and NCS frameworks. Clinical work 300 hours.
January to April 2022 I worked as a High Intensity Therapist with NHS, Dorking Health Care, counselling 30 clients, also conducting assessments.

Throughout the year, I undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses and training workshops, keeping abreast of latest developments.
Therapy, is about listening and helping clients to help themselves - it is about together working towards an identified objective, mutual respect, collaboration. This is the way I like to work.
EQ - Emotional Intelligence is a quality that can help us forge more positive relationships using empathy as a foundation and, when things go wrong in life as they invariably do, we can focus on acceptance, ownership, healing, restoration and conflict resolution. That's empowering!
Wherever you are on your personal journey, our lives have purpose. Your individual purpose is not comparable to anyone else's - it is all about you. It's what makes you feel complete, content and at peace with yourself. It's what earths you. Therapy can help us to navigate relationships more positively. It starts with you.
