My background is in mental health and I have had the privilege of working as a counsellor for a number of different charities in the Manchester area. Though my qualifications are in counselling, I have also worked as a support worker for adults with Autism and as an English Teacher. Some of this work has taken me abroad to South Korea, Myanmar and India, amongst other places. I have extensively studied meditation and mindfulness practices for my own personal growth and love to incorporate these in my counselling practice where appropriate.
I currently work as a High School Counsellor and work in private practice in the evenings.
BSc Counselling and Psychology - First class with honours (2014)
PGDip Counselling and Psychotherapy (2017)
TA 101 (Transactional Analysis)
As a registered member of the BACP I am required to complete at least 30 hours of continued professional development each year, here are some of the recent courses I have taken:

I am also an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. I am subject to Anxiety UK’s regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by my registered governing body.
