I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist, drawing upon Transactional Analysis, Transpersonal and Integrative modalities.
As well as working with individuals and couples in my private practice, I work with a charity, completing client assessments and counselling couples and individuals with varying issues.
I also look after the continual professional development program for qualified counsellors/psychotherapists and manage and teach on both the Introduction and Certificate (A-level equivalent) Courses in Psychodynamic Counselling Skills and Theory at Basingstoke Counselling Service.
