I have several years’ experience working with both male and female survivors and their families of on-going and historical sexual abuse and the affect and impact this has within the family setting.
As well as running my own private practice, I work along side an organisation that solely provides a counselling service for both survivors and their families of on-going and historical sexual abuse, including grooming and domestic abuse. I work with men and woman from 16 years +. I have been part of the organisation for two years.
I also have experience working alongside individuals and their families who suffer from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E) and Fibromyalgia. I have several years’ experience of understanding mild-moderate and severe M.E as well as chronic pain.
I have experience in working with the older generation both as a therapist and in the care capacity.
Please see my services section for other issues i can work with and services which i can provide.
