Counsellors' Qualifications and Experience
I currently work part-time at The University of Liverpool as a counsellor and part-time in Private Practice. I qualified over fifteen years ago and have since completed an M.A. in Counselling Studies at The University of Chester, training in Couples Counselling with Relate and have qualified as a Clinical Supervisor at The University of Manchester. I am a Registered and Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk). My professional experience has mainly been counselling adults over a wide range of issues and in various contexts including the NHS, Higher Education, Relate, the Voluntary Sector and private practice. I work from an integrative perspective which is informed by several theoretical approaches and I adhere to the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions.

I am employed part-time as a university counsellor alongside my work in private practice. I have also worked in two north-west charities with adults, and as a therapist with young people for Barnardo’s, YPAS, and in secondary school settings. I am a member of the BACP having qualified in integrative psychotherapy at postgraduate level, training which allows me to adapt my practice to suit the needs of the individual. I have a particular interest in the links between creativity and wellbeing, especially the uses of writing in therapy, and run workshops in this field. Currently I am undertaking additional training in Internal Family Systems Therapy which recognises how the hurt and protective parts of our psyche influence us daily. It is also a model which reflects my belief that we have within us the necessary qualities which bring healing and change.
