I’ve been working as a counsellor for 7 years now. I chose to become a counsellor as I wanted to help people, having experienced for myself how it can make a big difference to people’s lives.
Previously I’ve lived in many different places, including time spent overseas, which I believe has made me pretty open-minded and accepting. Also I’ve had a variety of different jobs, including being coach/trainer, and I believe in drawing upon all my life experience in my work as a counsellor.
7 years’ experience working in an NHS Occupational Health department
Concurrently 3 years’ experience working in local charities and 5 years working in private practice.
