I have worked for 15 years as a bereavement counsellor and have had 13 years’ post qualification clinical experience in general counselling. I see individuals and help them to meet their personal needs through supporting them through their personal circumstances. I help people through the process of making adjustments and accepting changes in their lives.
I initially trained to work with children and spent many years working in schools. I have experience of counselling children there and for a children's bereavement charity as well as counselling students in a university setting.
For many years I worked within the voluntary sector. Currently, I work for a national charity providing online bereavement counselling as well as a working privately.
