I am an accredited counsellor, psychotherapist with 13 years experience, using an integrative approach.
I have completed my advanced training in clinical supervision, equivalent to level 6 with the CPCAB. This specialist training enables me to ensure high standards in supervision. My approach follows the model of Hawkins & Shohet and Page & Woskett. This model is based upon coaching, through the use of lenses, to help provide structure and explore difference.
The Level 5 course in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (CPCAB) has enabled me to work with a wide range of complex psychological health problems. This training is recognised by BACP and UKCP for the professional high standards of training and equips me to take on a senior role within an organisation.
Level 4 – CPCAB, two years training which gives me knowledge, skills and competencies to work safely as a qualified counsellor.
Level 3 – Level 2 CPCAB is a one year training intended for individuals who have already acquired a recognised qualification in counselling skills.
I work alongside a University to provide supervision in education and alliance team for clinical supervision in the North West.
I am qualified to work in animal assisted therapy. Animals can help improve mood, reduce depression, lower blood pressure, motivation and reduce or prevent stress.
Further vocational courses have given me the knowledge and awareness to practice safely. I have training in Safeguarding for both children and adults including training on CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation). I am enhanced DBS and completed ASIST training in suicide awareness.
