Experience and Qualifications

I completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2009. I have worked for a number of volunteer organisations including Woman’s Trust, Caravan Drop In Counselling Service, FreshStart Psychotherapy working with clients with a wide variety of presenting issues, and now work in private practice. As a mother myself I have a particular interest in pregnancy and motherhood – what happens to a woman’s identity during this time – and in pre/post natal illness and birth trauma issues. My experience and interest also covers stress and anxiety, general trauma and dissociation, depression and low self-esteem, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), abuse and domestic violence, adapting to life transitions such as marriage (or separation), parenthood, redundancy and bereavement, and finding purpose and meaning in life.
