I have several years of experience working with loss and grief. Besides working as a specialist bereavement midwife counsellor, I have offered counselling with Cruse Bereavement Care and am currently providing counselling at a local cancer unit and a children’s hospice.
Due to my love of learning and my commitment to offer the best possible care, I am committed to regular continuing professional development (CPD) training and workshops.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) whose Ethical Framework and Code of Practice I adhere to.
I am fully insured and have a valid enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) clearance.
