My Involvement with Cúnamh began 13 years ago when I became a volunteer for the Cunamh Service as a co-facilitator in several creative therapy groups aimed at addressing the specific needs of clients. Since my journey began I have developed my practice to become a counsellor and furthermore have specialised in Responding to Alcohol and drug misuse, The Impact of Alcohol on Self-Harm Crisis Intervention, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (Assist), Motivational Interviewing, Child Sexual Exploitation & Child Protection, Young people matter, Anger management, Making Connections with an Autistic Brain, Child Protection Practice, Top Tips for supporting Clients with Eating Disorders using CBT, School Based Anxiety.
I currently work as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist Enhanced (CBT-E) for eating disorders, furthering my understanding through the continued practice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Level 5). I work with Children, young people and adults who present with early onset eating disorder behaviours. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the British Eating Disorders Society (BrEDS).
I work as an integrative Practitioner I believe there is more than one Therapeutic approach that can help different individuals in different situations. I use different elements of different approaches to counselling and Psychotherapy to help clients explore and cope with their problems. The core of my work is Person-Centred.
Outside of work, I enjoy running, spending time with my Cat, and socializing.
