Training and Experience

ABC level 4 Diploma Integrative Counselling

 

I have many years experience working at Community Counselling Service in Canterbury. This has enabled me to have a wide range of experience working with adults from NHS referrals and self referrals.  I have experience and training working with East Kent Rape line.  I have also work full time as early intervention counsellor in schools with children and young people from 4 to 18 years old.  Work at  Ethelbert Children’s Services, working with young people who are in specialist residential care.
