General Counselling / Psychotherapy
About 60% of my work is in general work where I am experienced in working in the areas of: Anxiety, anger, depression,bereavement and loss, low self-esteem, relationship issues including divorce, separation and affairs and other family issues as work-related stress and anxiety (inclusing bullying and harrassment) and other forms of stress.
Abuse and Trauma
The remaining 40% of my work where I have considerable experience and extensive additional training is in working with adults who have experienced sexual / domestic violence and/or childhood abuse (emitional, physical, sexual or neglect). I have worked with clients suffering from PTSD with and without other dissociative conditions and dissociative disorders upto and including DID.
I have run workshops for counsellors / students on abuse and trauma for long-term counselling services, FE colleges and CPD groups and provided mentoring for counsellors in this area as well as contributing to a publication for professionals working on this.
