I have also been a member of a Gestalt CPD group. Training in Mindfulness has added to my toolkit of therapeutic interventions and completion of my training in Supervision means that I am qualified to offer individual Supervision to Counsellors and Psychotherapists. As a fully qualified EMDR therapist I am able to offer this NICE approved therapy in conjunction with more traditional psychotherapy.

I am a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work according to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling & Psychotherapy. As such I receive regular monthly supervision. I also hold an enhanced DBS certificate and professional indemnity insurance.
