I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a Psychology (Honours) Degree in 2008. Since then, I have concentrated my professional and academic efforts within counselling and psychological therapeutic interventions. My background is primarily in clinical practice. I have been engaged in integrative therapeutic work in the third/Charity sector and NHS, primary and secondary educational settings, and University mental health support. I have areas of expertise in applying humanistic and psychodynamic psychological theory to inform my individual practice with children, adolescents, young people and systemic work with families.
