Training, qualifications and experience
MSc Integrative Psychotherapy
PG Cert. Integrative Counselling
BA (Hons) Philosophy
I have over seven years' professional and academic training in counselling and psychotherapy underpinned by my lifelong commitment to learning and personal development. My philosophy studies trained me to develop an open and enquiring mind, the ability to see things from multiple perspectives and the ability to contemplate life's 'big picture' - extremely helpful in therapeutic work. Additionally, I am no stranger to adversity; this means that I know it's possible to overcome pain and difficulty and live a much happier, fulfilled and peaceful life. That means I truly believe you can, too.
