I am a qualified Nurse with over 25 years experience and I'm registered with the NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council).
I have worked in both acute and non-acute settings, NHS and private. I still work part-time as a Nurse and this gives me a unique insight into how mental health problems can affect physical health, and vice versa.
I have a pgDip in Psychodynamic Counselling from Manor House Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a member of BACP, and I was a counsellor for the charity Mind for 5 years.
I have completed further training in Relationship Counselling at The Tavistock and Mentalization Based Therapy at The Anna Freud Centre.
I have a Diploma in Cognitive Hypnotherapy and a Certificate in NLP from the acclaimed Quest Institute.
I am also a member of NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy).
I am an accredited Instructor Member, approved by MHFA England to deliver Youth MHFA courses
(MHFA England is the only provider of licensed Mental Health First Aid Instructor training in England)
