I studied at Wealden College of Counselling and Psychotherapy on their BACP Accredited Diploma in Counselling Course where I was awarded a Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.
I am a fully registered Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP) and work to their code of ethics, and EMDR Association UK & Europe. I have an Enhanced DBS Certificate.
I have specialist experience of working with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma and abuse. I have also worked with families in crisis and with young adults in the areas of self-harm, abuse, anger and low self-esteem.
I am a qualified supervisor and can offer 1:1 or group supervision to qualified or training counsellors/psychotherapists and other healthcare professionals. I also have experience of running supervision groups and 1:1 supervision for family keyworkers in East Sussex County Council and Cruse Bereavement Care.
Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) Practitioner
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Trauma and PTSD and I am currently in my final year of an MSc in Therapeutic Practice for Psychological Trauma at Chester University.
EMDR is a highly-regarded evidence-based treatment. Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post traumatic stress disorders and has also been successfully applied in the treatment of pain, phobias, panic and a variety of anxiety disorders including performance anxiety, complicated grief, sexual and/or physical abuse and disturbing memories.
I provide therapy for several Employee Assistance Providers (EAPs), solicitors and organisations such as the NHS, the emergency services and I am a member of the network of recognised Bupa therapists and Noreen Tehrani Associates.
I am a counsellor at AAAC (adults abused as children) Counselling Service.
I have, therefore, gained a vast experience in working with many different client issues and I am trained in many areas of therapy, in particular, in working with PTSD, trauma, abuse, bereavement, depression, anxiety, anger and am happy to work on an individual basis or with couples in either short or long term therapy.
I also offer telephone or Skype therapy.
