I have been working as a counsellor since 1999. I work in an integrated way using my training in therapies such as, transactional analysis, person centred, gestalt and cognitive behavioural therapy(CBT). I am an accredited member of the British Association of counsellors and psychotherapists (BACP) which means I have completed a substantial level of training and experience which has been approved by an organisation that regulates counselling and psychotherapy.
