I worked as a volunteer counsellor with Horsham and Crawley Counselling Service for 7 years. In 2006 I created and later managed a counselling service for children struggling with parental divorce. I have been in private practice since 2007. In addition to counselling I supervise Home School Link Workers and Children Centres Outreach workers across Surrey. I am a recognised trainer for the CAFCASS court ordered Separated Parents Information Programme.
I am also involved with the work of a local charitable counselling service.
I regularly attend clinical supervision in accordance with the BACP ethical framework.
