My Background and Qualifications

As a BACP accredited counsellor, I am constantly undertaking training to keep up to date with recent developments in counselling so that I can provide the best possible counselling service for my clients.

I hold the following qualifications:

  • Registered Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work to their high professional and ethical standards and am fully insured.
  • Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Dartmoor Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy in Devon.
  • Diploma in Children and Young People from Safe Space for Counselling, Devon.
  • Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from Safe Space for Counselling, Devon.
  • Level 3 Certificate for Safeguarding and Child Protection from Babcock Education Services.

My original professional qualification was in teaching with a BEd Hons, and before becoming a counsellor I worked for many years in a supportive role in education, including as a Thrive Practitioner. I also spent several years living in Spain working with vulnerable people, including those trying to leave addictions to drugs, and I speak fluent Spanish.
