As well as my private practice, I work at a counselling charity in Essex. Additionally, I have worked at a substance misuse agency in Southend and a private practice in Maldon. I am a registered member of the BACP, which means that I abide by their code of ethics.
Previously, I worked for many years in the public sector. I gained an LLB (Hons) in Law from University of East London and worked as an advocate in the Criminal Appeal Court. I was also employed in the welfare department of the Metropolitan Police Service and subsequently worked as a staff welfare officer in the Court Service. I have considerable experience in working with mental health issues, specialising in this area whilst working for a local authority as a homeless families officer and for a leading housing association.
During my varied career, I have been fortunate enough to work with people from many diverse backgrounds. Amongst other issues, I have experience in working with anxiety, depression, self-harm and self-esteem issues, eating disorders, domestic abuse, relationship difficulties and work-related problems.
I understand and accept that your individual experience is purely unique to you.
