I originally came to counselling in 1997 volunteering with both the Samaritans (Bridgend) and Cruse Cymru (Neath/Port Talbot). I studied for the Certificate in Counselling Skills at the University of Wales College Newport in 1998-99, and later attained my Diploma in Counselling Theory and Practice with Well Training Ltd, Swansea. The practical component of the diploma was conducted at a local GP's practice and a drug and alcohol harm reduction agency and this experience is proving invaluable now.
I abide by the ethical guidelines of the BACP, of which I am a member. I am also an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and have public liability insurance with Howdens. As stipulated by these bodies, I continue to undergo regular professional supervision where I receive guidance and support from a highly qualified practitioner.
