I have worked as a therapist for over 5 years.
I endeavour to be inclusive in my delivery both in group and 1:2:1 therapeutic and educational work.
I will take into consideration different needs, understandings and backgrounds so all can engage in a safe and beneficial way. I am fortunate to work in a team that is multi-racial, different ages, wide range of cultures, religions, orientations and physical abilities and interests. We celebrate each individual’s unique qualities and I learn new things about the diversity of human life everyday.
I have knowledge and understanding of the National Counselling Society Ethical Framework and follow these guidelines in my work.
I maintain clinical work standards by taking part in private supervision sessions each month.
All my client assessments and evaluation feedback are kept confidential. The only time this information is shared with other organisations is if I have reason to and have consent to share this information from the client in question. Alternatively if there is an immediate safe guarding concern involving the client or a third party who is at risk, I will break confidentiality following the rules of GDPR.
