I have over 30 years' experience including corporate, caring and helping professions and have extensive knowledge of people and relationship. My current work includes bereavement, relationship, alcoholism, abuse, mental health and learning disability clients.
I very much see my role as listening, reflecting, supporting, tentatively challenging and offering input using my experience and training whilst sitting alongside you as a fellow human with my own life-experience.
Alongside my private work I have gained experiece as a volunteer counsellor at Sam Beare Hospice in Weybridge, Surrey which involved working with bereaved clients and family members. I also gained experience working at a local Rape and Sexual Abuse centre in Guildford, Surrey and continue to actively work with addiction (12 step program).
I have a current DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) which enables me to work with vulnerable adults.
