PG Cert in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
I am an experienced Person-Centred Therapist
who has been practising for the past 8 years.
I also integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
and Person-Centred Art Therapy skills into my
practise, if appropriate. I am qualified to work
with individuals and couples on a time limited
and open-ended basis. I qualified from the University of Warwick in 2004 and I became an accredited therapist with the BACP in 2007, I am also a member of the UKRC and BABCP.
I have a wealth of experience of working with individuals and couples from all different backgrounds and cultures who present with a broad range of issues. These issues include addiction, (substance and alcohol misuse), depression, anxiety, abuse, bereavement & loss, sexuality issues, HIV related issues and emotional and relationship difficulties and work related stress.
At present I work in private practice and as an affiliated therapist for a number of Corporate Employee Assisted Providers. I also co-manage a voluntary ‘in house’ counselling service within a GP’s practice in Leamington Spa, Warks. Previously, I worked as a therapist for 4 years within a substance misuse agency, counselling clients with addictions. I work from 4 different areas, Coventry, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and Solihull.
My personal and professional development is of utmost importance. I regularly attend appropriate courses that meet the needs of my individual development. I attend regular ongoing clinical supervision and I have my own Professional Liability Insurance. I also have an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau Certificate (CRB).
