I trained as a Counsellor after many years of working with computers, and I have found this work far more fulfilling and rewarding.
The core philosophy of my training is that every individual has the capacity and resilience to make the right choices for themselves, given the right environment.
My personal experience is that I have grown most, when I have felt heard and understood, in an environment where I have been given the freedom to explore at my own pace and in my own direction.
I have been practicing as a Counsellor for 14 years in various settings.
Private Practice for Adults and Young People, FE College, Universities, Third sector Counselling Agencies, Bereavement Support Service, Rape and Sexual Abuse Agency.
As part of my portfolio of work I am the Clinical Director for The Olive Branch Christian Counselling Service based in Winchester.
