I am a Registered Counsellor and Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as a member of the Person-Centred Art Therapy Association. Up until December 2018, I was running my Private Practice based in Ealing, W5 and London, W1K and working as an Affiliate Counsellor on an Employee Assistance Programme and for a Private Health Provider. Since 1st January 2019, I took a big plunge and decided to no longer offer one-to-one counselling and to focus on my role as a Creative Workshop Facilitator and to write a book which includes Flowers Within™ Meditations.
In the past, I worked in various settings such as in a bereavement agency, a hospice, a mental health charity, a primary school and a counselling service for young people.
Graduating with a diploma in Counselling in 2004 and a certificate in Person-Centred Art Therapy PCATS in 2007, I decided to set up my private practice.
In 2008, I experienced a personal crisis and turned to personal therapy and complementary therapy for support. This was an opportunity to work on parts of myself that needed healing.
Learning never ends and as part of my continuous professional development, I qualified with a professional certificate in sex addiction and a certificate in the foundation for infant loss accredited provider training.
Self-care is important and I find that being in nature helps me to find my true nature. Hence, my work is nature inspired.
