My working background is within the Military where I have worked in the Royal Air Force for 14 years. I became interested in this field after completing A levels along with the Trauma work undertaken in the RAF.
The way I will work with you is, by offering a confidential place to express any problems or difficulties you may be facing at this current stage in your life and together we can look at how to recover from this and resolve these issues.
I am a naturally caring person and I will provide non-judgmental assistance to you. I am committed to delivering client-centred support that empowers you and enables you to make informed decisions.
My way of working is integrative, where I may use tools and techniques from other modalities alongside the Person-Centred approach.
