I originally come from a catering background. I had a work colleague Vicky, who trained me as a manager for a well-known coffee chain. I remember her saying “I think you would make a really good counsellor because you look at things from a rounded perspective.” So I decided to complete an introductory counselling course and so began my journey to becoming a qualified counsellor.
I completed my training at Lewisham College and I achieved a Higher National Diploma in Counselling passing with a distinction. I am on the register and a member of the BACP (British Association in Counselling & Psychotherapy) I am accredited. I adhere to The BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling.
I graduated from South Bank University with a Certificate & Diploma in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector. I upgraded my qualification to Qualified Teacher in Learning and Skills with The Society for Education and Training (Formerly known as the Institute for Teaching) Professional Experience I am the Course Coordinator for the Introduction and Intermediate Courses at LC&CTA (Lewisham Counselling & Counsellor Training Associates) I am also one of the Senior Course Tutors.
I have over 10 years’ experience working in educational settings, voluntary sector, charitable organisations and I have successfully managed several projects.
I completed my supervision training at CPPD Counselling College achieving a Diploma in Clinical Supervision.
