About me

 

I am trained as an integrative counsellor which allows me to draw on a number of approaches in relation to my clients. I have a postgraduate qualification in women's studies with a particular interest in women, bipolar and creativity.

 

I worked for many years with a national mental health charity as a self help group facilitator, advocate and counsellor. My previous career as a Metropolitan police officer has also enabled me to gain a lot of experience and insight into mental health issues and the mental health system. 

 

I have experience of working with clients with gender/sexuality concerns and as an openly gay woman with a daughter born through donor AI, I also have first hand experience of lesbian parenting.

 

I am currently based in Marbella, Southern Spain where I offer therapy in a calm and tranquil setting. 

 

I also offer SKYPE sessions. 

Sexual & Gender Identity:
Lesbian - Female

Experience and approach

I have a BA (Hons) in Counselling Studies which incorporated integrative counselling theory and practice. I became particularly interested in humanistic theory and feminist counselling. I completed a post graduate qualification in women´s studies, specifically researching women, bipolar and creativity. Latterly I have completed a 2 year diploma in therapeutic counselling in order to develop my knowledge and practice in relation to the humanistic approach.
