QUALIFICATIONS

Diploma and Membership Bodies

Advanced Level 4 Diploma in Integrative Counselling which has been accredited by the BACP.  I am also on the Accredited Registrant Register with NCS (National Counselling Society).

Further Training

I have undertaken the Externship in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) is based on the idea that emotions are not the only important factors in our lives, but the key to who we are. The theory behind EFT posits that we construct our very selves based on emotion (Greenberg, 2004).

I have trained with the Couples Institute (USA) for one year under its founder Dr Ellyn Bader Phd author of ‘In Quest For The Mythical Mate’ and ‘Tell Me No Lies’. The institute takes a developmental approach to relationship work drawing on different therapeutic approaches, including attachment theory, differentiation theory and neuroscience.

Other various trainings include Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
