Dip. Counselling. MBACP (Reg. Accred.) Qualified PICT Practitioner.
I began my training in 2008 at West Kent College where I completed the basic counselling skills and theory course. I then went onto Spurgeon's College in south London where I completed the Diploma in Counselling, this was in 2011.
The course appealed to me as it drew together theories from the Psychodymanic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural schools of theory. This integrative model of working allows me to use these theories and my skills to the benefit of my clients often with Transactional Analysis – working with the client to explore the character states of their own inner parent, adult and child.
Integrative counselling enables me to work, where and when appropriate, with creative tools which can also be very effective.
I have completed the Parks Inner Child Therapy Diploma (PICT) and am a qualified PICT practitioner. Recently I have begun training in Deep Release with a view to continuing this in the coming years.
