I am an experienced Counsellor and I work with adults and young people from four easily accessible locations in Caterham, Coulsdon and Godstone (Pond Tail GP Surgery). I completed my training at Spurgeons College as secular counsellor. I am Christian and am happy to explore this and other faiths should you wish to introduce it.
I have worked with children and young adults for over twenty years, as a registered child minder and in infant, junior and senior schools in a pastoral capacity amongst other duties. I volunteered for Marie Curie, St Catherine’s Hospice and Charles Darwin Senior School in Biggin Hill. I also have been trained in child protection, safe guarding and am DBS checked.
As a requirement and a desire to expand and enhance my knowledge, I regularly do CPD (Continual Personal Development). This comes in the form of reading, watching programs, attending workshops and training days. I also belong to a monthly Counsellors Meet Up.
I am a registered member MBACP of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy.
