Welcome to my Doncaster based counselling service website
WHY CHOOSE ME FOR COUNSELLING
I am Relate trained with several years experience working for Relate as a Couples Counsellor, Relationship Therapist and as a specialist Psychosexual (Sex) Therapist. I am qualified to Post Graduate Diploma level both as a Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual (Sex) Therapist with experience to date working at Relate, the NHS Substance Misuse team, a Local Authority Domestic Violence team and in my own private practice.
I am a registered member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and you can access my profile and registration number via the link on my sidebar of this page. I am a registered and fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist and have Professional Indemnity Insurance. I undertake supervision on a monthly basis and attend regular Continuous Professional Development(CPD) courses each year. This enables me to further my knowledge and continue to improve my practice.
I have worked for Relate in East Yorkshire for several years practicing as a Relationship and Couples Counsellor and a Psychosexual (Sex) Therapist. I also delivered therapy to patients referred by their GP for anxiety, depression and panic attacks.
I also worked for the NHS for ten years until 2014 for the Community Mental Health Team, but specialising as a Senior Practitioner within the Substance Misuse Team working therapeutically with patients presenting with alcohol and substance misuse addictions.
I implemented Behavioural Couples Therapy and delivered it to patients whilst working in this team.
It was whilst working for the Substance Misuse Team that I learnt and developed my practice working with patients to address their addictions to illicit drugs, prescribed drugs and to alcohol. This decade of experience coupled with ongoing Professional Development and a Post Graduate Diploma from Hull University in Psychosexual Therapy gave me an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the route causes of addiction and the theories, tools, strategies and therapeutic skills to help people to overcome addictive behaviours.
I hold a Diploma in Drug and Alcohol Counselling and I am qualified to deliver Behavioural Couples Therapy as recognised in NICE Guidelines and used within the NHS to address drug and alcohol problems within relationships. I am a practitioner in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which is very effective in treating anxiety and depression.
At present I have a contract with a Local Authority employed as an Independent Domestic Violence Advocate ( IDVA ). I work within a multi-agency environment, but focus on ensuring the safety of high risk domestic abuse/violence clients and any children where applicable.
