Counselling in Mill Hill, Colindale, North-West London, Hertfordshire & surrounding areas.
I have been working in private practice and previously within the NHS, for many years. I have extensive experience with issues such as anxiety, drug and alcohol addiction, domestic abuse, eating disorders and childhood sexual abuse. I have also worked extensively with bereavement and loss, having worked in a hospice for a number of years with bereaved families; I also have good experience of working with adolescents and young people.
In addition, I have been working with the charity Mencap for over 17 years, supporting families and carers of children with special needs, learning disability and illness. I have a good understanding of Autism and Asperger's syndrome, and the struggles that people on this spectrum and also their families and siblings, may have to cope with.
I have also supported the GBS Support Group (Guillain Barre Syndrome) for many years as a volunteer local contact for families with sick children.
I qualified from the University of Hertfordshire with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic and Person-Centred Counselling, and I have a Certificate in Bereavement Counselling, in addition to training in Autism Awareness. I also have a CBT certificate and integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy into my practice.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethics and code of safe practice; I am also listed on the BACP register for Counsellors and Psycotherapists.
I have a current DBS police check, which allows me to work directly with children and vulnerable adults; I am also trained in Safeguarding/Child Protection and am fully insured.
Issues I work with include:
alcohol/drug addiction, anger, anxiety, autism, bereavement, bullying, computer-addiction, depression, disability, domestic abuse, eating disorders, low self-esteem, relationships, sexual abuse, special needs, stress, teenage issues, work-related issues
