About Me

NHS Therapist

For the last 3 years I have been working for the NHS as a fully qualified Counsellor and Therapist for young people and children. Based in South East England, I've worked with students in many of the local colleges, secondary schools and primarys to provide short-term counselling for a wide range of issues.

When I completed my four years training I qualified as one of the youngest professional counsellors in the UK. Because of my passion for the subject I was given special dispensation to start the course at 18 years old - 3 years earlier than normal, and that passion for helping people reach their goals through therapy has just continued to grow.  Since then my subsequent years of experience working with people of all ages in many different environments has reinforced my desire to continue to be an effective listener able to guide people to managing their anxieties and reaching their goals
