Get to Know Me

Since 2013, I have been training and gaining experience in therapeutic work. 2014 I got my certificate in Teaching Mindfulness Skills and worked within the corporate world supporting staff with day to day stresses with weekly mindfulness sessions. With my personal losses I decided to support others by becoming a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Support as a Bereavement Volunteer in 2017. With this being such a rewarding role, I found people were able to connect, process and grow. I wanted to be and do better and over the years I completed counselling training. It was in 2020 I qualified with the CPCAB Level 4 as an integrative counsellor. I am registered with the NCPS (National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society) following their ethical framework. After qualifying I found I had time to go ahead with my EFT training and in 2021 I qualified as an EFT Practitioner, and in 2023 I completed my  Advanced Training and now an Accredited Advanced Practitioner. I am also working on completing a BSc with The Open University, Psychology with Counselling. I regularly complete other CPD to support my understanding and knowledge to help and support you better.  

Areas of Interest​

Throughout my journey I suffered much loss and change and found that grief impacts with each ending and new beginning. With each life transition came grief and the processing began again with post traumatic growth. Volunteering and working with those bereaved, supporting those in life changing events I’ve found a passion for loss & grief work and continue the work, learn, grow and understand this area. I find that grief can impact many situations and life even if it is a historic loss if not processed kindly at the time. We underestimate it and though it almost feels it is everywhere, we don’t always give it the attention it deserves.  

However grief shows up in your life, know you do not need to be alone, you are not the only one and I know how hard it is to pick up the phone or send that email and also know how much it is worth it. 

The journey continues….
