My ongoing training helps ensure that I engage with latest research and thinking. Insight from previous employment helps ground me in the reality of my clients experience of career as a professional or business owner. Working both in the NHS and as a clinical supervisor ensures I get lots of feedback on my practice beyond that available in purely private work. This helps me question and stay fresh with my ideas about what might help my clients.
The path to this psychotherapy qualifying training included Relate’s relationship therapy diploma and their clinical supervision certificate.
