Training and Qualification

I have worked as a counsellor for a local charity in Hastings, which offered short-term therapy through the IAPT programme. Alongside my private practice, I am working with another Hastings-based organisation which provides a whole range of creative and supportive services for young people in the area. My main role within this service is providing counselling within local schools.
