I am 42 and have been counselling for 8 years, most of my work is with addictions and compulsive behaviors, I have also worked with friends and family, spent a lot of time working in recovery contexts with drugs and alcohol, the mental health field and harmful sexual behaviors, currently I am only trained to work with adults. In September I will be starting a Criminology and Psychology Degree.
I have done some training with couples but would like to do more.
I am an integrative counselor which means that I have a lot of different recovery experience and will use what clients feel suits them best and is most likely to fit into their recovery journey.
I am trained in both secular and christian counselling models and have understanding of other belief systems should that need to form part of the work, I understand that there are two sides to this resulting in either positive memories and sadly in some cases abusive ones.
I work with Adult services which is a company that are recruiting counselors that are able to work with Kink issues and the BDSM community, I am trained by StopSO and Circles UK to work with sexually harmful behavior including and not limited to the accessing of illegal images online.
