QUALIFICATIONS & TRAINING

DIPLOMA IN PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC COUNSELLING

I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor.  The qualification is a CPCAB Level 5 in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. The main difference between a counsellor and psychotherapeutic counsellor is working at 'relational depth'. Relational depth is a deeper therapeutic connection between client and therapist, and it is at the centre of my counselling work. It also means I have the skills and knowledge to counsel individuals with more complex mental health issues.

DIPLOMA IN THERAPEUTIC COUNSELLING

I qualified as a counsellor in 2017.  The qualification is a CPCAB Level 4 in Therapeutic Counselling.  I have also passed the BACP's Certificate of Proficiency which is a standardised assessment to demonstrate I have the ability to be a professional counsellor / psychotherapist. 

OTHER QUALIFICATIONS

Prior to counselling training I was awarded Early Years Professional Status and graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Early Childhood Studies.  These qualifications demonstrate a specialism in working with 0-5 year olds.  My dissertation focused on attachment, which now supports my counselling work when working with children and adults.  

GRIEF & LOSS TRAINING

I have undertaken training with The Foundation for Infant Loss and am on their Accredited Provider register.

 

I have completed a 16 week training course to be a Cruse Bereavement Volunteer. I visited people in their homes and offered short term counselling.

SAFEGUARDING AND DBS

I have completed Safeguarding training and have an Enhanced DBS which allows me to work with children, young people and vulnerable adults.

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

​As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am committed to completing 30 hours of continuing professional development every year.  My learning supports me when counselling clients with more complex mental health issues.

​

I have completed training in Demystifying Trauma - Understanding and Tools, Working with PTSD and Trauma, Mindfulness in the Counselling Context, Working with Young People (including online MindEd training), Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), PODS: Trauma and the body; dissociation and somatisation, and ACPO DASH Training.
