I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I worked and trained with a trauma clinic, helping clients through they're counselling journey, along side this, I attended regular training programmes, workshops.
I studied in different integrated aspects and modalities of therapy.

I'm fully trained in the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy technique and the Person Centred Therapy technique.
