Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Accredited and Registered Psychosynthesis Counsellor with a strong person-centred influence; Dr Carl Rogers.
I qualified as a Counsellor in 2000 and I have trained as an ILM Coach, an Emotional Freedom Techniques practitioner (EFT) and hold a certificate in Play Therapy. I also work as a Human Resources professional
and I am a Chartered member of Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
My private practice is based in Enfield and I work in a Hertfordshire school and a counselling centre in North London. I have the privilege to work with adults and young people providing both long term and short term therapy, coaching and supervision.
I started work with the Hertfordshire Youth Service in 1991 where I moved from voluntary work to paid work in
youth clubs and detached street work; dealing with relationship, social and drug issues, supporting sexual health and school refuser projects. Those years formed a solid foundation, which has led to me Counselling adults and young people and developing a skill for employee relations; supporting others through Coaching.
I am proud to deliver a professional service to all the adults and young people I work with; whether that be as a Counsellor, HR professional, Coach or EFT practitioner.
My private practice is in Enfield, EN1, where I work with adults and young people working through a range of issues including pre and post bereavement, self-esteem, self-awareness, relationship and family issues, work related stress, anger management, bullying, abuse, self-harm, travel anxiety, Asperger’s, the Autistic spectrum and animal bereavement (this list is not exhaustive). I am on the health insurance Private Practice Registers (PPR) for Aviva.
