I hold an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
My extensive counselling experience is gained in NHS Primary Care (GP Surgery), drug and alcohol dependency (addiction) agency, 6th Form Colleges, Employee Assistance Program (EAP), Alton Counselling Service and in private practice in Alton. This experience spans 11 years of post qualifying practice.
I have extensive experience of working in an office environment before training as a counsellor which means that I am able to work with you on workplace related issues. I do counselling for Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs).
ConfidentialityMy work is governed by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) code of ethics and confidentiality which means that I do not discuss details of my clients with other people. The only instance where I may need to share information with other agencies, would be if you or another person is at risk of harm. I will always discuss such concerns with you first.
The BACP code of ethics is primarily for the protection of clients and dictates that all member counsellors regularly see a supervisor in order to ensure that the work they do is best tailored to their clients needs. This requires that I share limited information concerning my clients with my supervisor although your identity will not be disclosed. My supervisor also abides by the BACP code of ethics and confidentiality.
