Experience and Qualifications

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and closely follow their ethical framework which is explained in detail here.

Experience

In my private practice I work with adults on a one-to-one basis and since 2010 I have also been working at a local sixth form college where I counsel students between 16 and 19 years of age.
