Experience and Skills
I have been working as a counsellor for 17 years. I am a qualified Accredited (ABACP) Integrative counsellor and currently a trainee Supervisor. Since completing my Counselling training in 2003 I have gained knowledge, skills and competencies through many CPD experiences and by working consistently as a practicing counsellor.
