Qualifications and Training
My professional qualification is accredited by the BACP and obtained at Cardiff and Vale College (Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling). I am fully committed to my continuing professional development (CPD) and regularly undertake relevant training. I believe knowledge can create confidence and reassurance, whilst enhancing your life experiences and enriching your life. I have completed training on ‘Engaging with adults who have been sexually abused’ (University of South Wales) and ASIST suicide intervention (Cardiff MIND). In addition to this I have also attended workshops on Play Therapy and Safeguarding (Place2be) and completed a Level 3 training day on Personality Disorders (Talking Heads).
I have experience within a range of settings from an Employee Counselling Service to working with young people in Higher Education. I have particular expertise in counselling people affected by alcohol and drug use and adults who have experienced sexual abuse.
